McCall's 6796..... Last Project of 2014

Happy 2015 folks and yes another McCall's....this time M6797  top pattern was made into a dress. I scored the sweater knit fabric from my local Fabricland and knew right there it was destined for a dress. The dress was made in approximately 2.5hrs  morning of Dec.31 and made it my official last project of 2014......

These few alterations were made to the pattern
Modifications Made
1. Cut size 14, lengthened to dress length and tapped from hip to hemline
2. Omitted the buttons on the collar
3. Interfaced the sleeve and dress hem with fusible interface
4. Added a belt
No dislike at all as this dress kept me warm throughout the day and  I will make it my TNT sweater dress pattern. Flattering, easy and quick what not to love?
 Happy Sewing !!!
