I can't believe summer's almost over! Not that I'm complaining because Texas summers are not very nice. It's definitely time for me to start thinking about fall and winter sewing. I decided to make this dress with fall-appropriate fabric. I used view C but skipped the gathering on the shoulders because this fabric seems to work better with clean lines and less detail.
The back is made from one piece - which makes the dress a really quick sew. I'm usually not a big fan of McCall's instructions but these were easy to follow since there's not much detail to the dress.
There's a standing collar at the back, which comes as part of the front pattern piece. If you're skipping the sleeves like I did, then you only need two pattern pieces for the dress. Hopefully you can see the fabric better in the zoomed in picture above - I bought it at JoAnn but I don't remember what type of fabric it is.
My son wanted to be in the pics, too, lol! He's starting kindergarten tomorrow and he's super duper excited.
Hope you all have a wonderful week. Happy Sewing!!
