McCall’s 6102

Well, this is called the “1 Hour Dress”. I just wanted something easy to make, not fussy to wear, and comfortable. I’ve had this pattern for quite a while and decided to give it a try. In all honesty, It did take me a little more than an hour to make. I tend to be kind of slow sometimes. And I do like to finish off all of my seams with the serger so things don’t ravel. If I hadn’t done that,  I think it would have been about an hour or less to sew.

But it’s pretty straight-forward. I made View B with the sleeves in the knee-length. There are also versions without sleeves and longer lengths. I used a cotton blend I bought at JoAnn’s. It’s the perfect weight for hot, humid summer days like we have here.

That’s all for now. I need to find my sewing “mojo” because I must have misplaced it somewhere – LOL! I’m actually enjoying my summer and not too stressed about the sewing I’m not getting done right now.

Anyway, happy sewing everyone!

  1. I just made this dress from material I bought 20 yrs ago for curtains. I intended to make it mid calf, so I shortened the longer length one. I don't like it and may shorten to knee length. One important comment–the sleeves seem small. I will use a larger size sleeve next time. I used the darts. It took much longer than 1 hr and I am not a beginner.
