My Mother's day dress........Mccall's 6069

I had planned wearing this to mom's day dinner but wore something else because I didn't have time to finish it. Did I say I love this dress? lol...I love everything, when I saw Erica's version in black and white, I knew I will make mine in a similar fabric too. I got the fabric from Fabricland liquidation aisle for $2.50 a meter, with less than 3 meters left I went for it all...lol...I wish they had more, I love deals, who doesn't .........




The review...

Fabric: Rayon jersey from Fabricland...

Pattern Description: Pullover, above mid-knee, semi-fitted straight dresses A, B, C have elastic waist casing, stitched hem and bodice variations; dress A is sleeveless; dress B has three-quarter sleeves; dress C is sleeveless with self sash; dresses A, B, C have optional back strap; optional purchased belt

Pattern Sizing:  I cut 14 and graded up to 16 from waist down

Were the instructions easy to follow: Can't be better, very simple instructions to follow

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
(1)I lengthened the bodice by 1" and the hem by 2.5"
(2)I interfaced the optional back strap
(3)I made hanger loop on the back

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?Nothing to dislike......

Would you recommend it to others? Yes , if you like this kind of style go for,  it's very flatterring

Conclusion: An easy pattern , I love the style especially with the front and back cowl and the back strap...
Enjoy!!!!
