McCalls 6988.....

My version of McCall 6988 a well drafted pattern for every share. I love everything peplum/flounce and this pattern is no exception. Check out my pattern review below:


 Fabric: Poly-spandex fabric and polyurethane  faux leather from my local fabricland store.
Pattern Description: Semi-fitted dresses with self-lined yokes, princess seams, and back zipper. A, B with flounce and narrow hem. I made a sleeveless version B.
Pattern Sizing: Size E5, (14 - 22). I cut size 14 and morphed to 16 from waist down.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?:
Were the instructions easy to follow: The instructions are quite easy to follow.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: The following were made to original pattern
   1. Lengthened the bodice by 3.5",
   2. Omitted lined yoke,
   3. Interfaced neck and sleeve, turned-in and sewed down
   4. No lining attached.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Flounce..... I so much love
Conclusion: This style will flatter any figure and shape. It's a plus in my book.
