Maybe my last summer project…

I made McCall’s 6747. I really liked the easy, relaxed style for summer especially. I made this in View B. When I bought the pattern, the only size available at the store was a large. I didn’t think it would be a problem since the measurements are compatible to mine. I should have gotten a medium. What I ended up doing was cutting the side seams down to about a medium (or smaller) once I tried it on. I removed about an inch from each side. This was easy enough to do, but I think it’s just easier to buy the right size from the beginning. I also took in the back seam about 3/4″. I re-sized the sleeves to fit really well. I should have cut the neck band down more, though, because I think it’s not supposed to fit as loose at the neck as it does. Live and learn.

With all that being said, I do like the fit and feel of the dress. I show it with a belt since I just wanted a more fitted feel, but it can be worn with or without a belt.

So now I think it’s time for me to start working on some early Fall projects. I do have big plans, but we’ll see how much I can get done.
