McCalls 6024



The sun has come out, the birds are singing, It is Spring!
My sewing is in full gear for the season, and this dress is definitely screaming spring, lol.
What can I say, besides it's an easy sew, and I love ruffles, so feminine.




I know the pictures aren't the clearest, but I really dig this fabric it's a printed cotton
I purchased from High Fashion fabrics last summer. I didn't know what I wanted it to be,
but when i saw this pattern, I knew one of the views would be from this fabric. It's a wrap dress
and I'm a sucker for a wrap dress, (btw) and one of my favorite things about this one, it comes in different cup sizes, yea! It saves me time, so no FBA's needed! I actually have all views cut out and ready to be sewn, so There will be two more reviews coming from this pattern!
It's just so Spring, and I really like it!



Pattern Description: Wrapped, A-line dresses A, B, C, mid-knee length, have neck flounce and ties; dress A has faced armholes; dress B has flutter sleeves and purchased bias tape for binding edges; dressses A, B have hemline flounce; dress C has above elbow length sleeves and lower flounce; separate pattern pieces provided for A/B, C, D cup sizes.

Pattern Sizing: 6-20

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, I think so...


Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very well written.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? No dislikes. I love the diffrent cup sizes, so no fba was needed and that's a plus.

Fabric Used: Printed cotton


Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: No alterations were needed, but I rolled the hem on the ruffles/flounces.



Would you sew it again? Wou
ld you recommend it to others? Yes/Yes

Conclusion : This dress reminds me of spring and it was a very easy sew. I do have all views cut out and ready sew, if that's any indication how much I like this. What can I say, I love a wrap dress, and the length is perfect for me.





Have a great weekend .
Seeya!
