Welcome on board + Mccall's 6074

Please join me in welcoming a new  local blogger Christiana ... My kids call all my blogger friends my imaginary friends, so I told them Christiana is not imaginary I have met her . We are both members of a local sewing meet-up and she is so passionate about sewing and loves VOGUE patterns........yes VOGUE patterns. I have only made 2 or 3 ever....

Okay now, in my quest for colour....I made a simple Mccall's 6074 A-line dress. This fabric has been in my stash for over a year or so, it's a cotton eyelet with a bit of stretch I got from fabricland.

 Nothing actually to this pattern except that:
(1) I didn't gather the front
(2)Lengthened view A by 4"
(3) Made an interfaced neck facing .
(4)French seamed the entire dress.........

Were the instructions easy to follow: I didn't use the instruction at all  just did my thing

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing to dislike less than 3 hours project..... yeah, my kind of

Would you recommend it to others? Nice mojo booster, and great addition to a wardrobe......

Viola... A lovely dress  in a beautiful colour. I guess the mojo is finding its way back
Have a great weekend everyone....
