I thought I was going to like McCalls 7315. I really did. I saw the fabric on the live model from the pattern envelope in the store, but didn’t really like it. I even almost bought the watercolor satin fabric shown on envelope for view D. I’m really glad that I didn’t. It is a very easy pattern as advertised, I just don’t like it on me and for me. I thought I would like the V-neck and asymmetrical hemline. I don’t like either. The neckline is too high and the hemline seems unbalanced on me.
As a pattern review, this one is described as “dresses with neckline variations,” (1 variation) “fitted, lined bodice, skirt cut on crosswise grain, shaped hemline, wrong side shows, back zipper and narrow hem.” I used a size 8 in view D with no hem band in a Floral Cotton Print from Hancock Fabrics (yes, I am so sad they are closing; however that liquidation “sale” is ridiculous and will not benefit from my patronage).
The pattern is very easy as it states, that much is accurate. I just don’t like the end result. If it is what you’re looking for though, then it should be an easy and relatively quick project for even a beginner to take on. 🙂
