Yes, it’s a slightly different fabric, but another blue dress, nonetheless. I picked up McCall’s pattern 7249 on a whim and decided to use something in my stash to make it. I’m trying to pare down my stash this winter. The bin I have reserved for fabric is overflowing into a bag and a second smaller bin. I need to stop passing by the remnants table on my way out of the fabric store.
As a pattern review, I made View D without sleeves in a Size 6. Or you could say I made View A in the dress version. The instructions were easy to follow. The only changes I made were making the dress sleeveless and using Steam-A-Seam on the hem instead of stitching it.
This dress was a relatively quick and easy sew. I think it’s a little plain in the solid color but a co-worker told me I could dress it up with jewelry. 🙂 It was definitely comfortable all day.
