McCall's M5847 Denim Dress

My first time sewing with denim - yay! I always thought denim would be difficult to handle because it's so bulky but it was actually very easy to sew with. I love the pinstripe denim; I knew right away that I wanted to make a shirtdress. I used McCall's 5847, which I've had for quite some time so I'm glad I finally got to it. Warning - this pattern involves a lot of hand sewing, so if you don't like to sew by hand then you may want to stay away. Other than that it's a really great pattern and the instructions were easy to follow. I made view A and the only change I made was to skip the pockets. I think the pinstripe really doesn't need a lot of detail. 

I'm very pleased with the way it turned out so I'll definitely be making more versions of this pattern. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Happy sewing!
