I spoke last night of wishing of a closet full of perfect sheath dresses. I figured there was no better time to start than today!
I have one “easy” sheath dress pattern, McCall’s 6699 (http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m6699-products-44755.php?page_id=96) and I have some muslin on hand. I copied the pattern onto poster board (wow – so much easier to draw the pattern onto the fabric and then cut!) That way, if I have to make some changes or cut a different size, I have the original pattern, unscathed. I am a convert to copying the pattern rather than pinning and cutting it.
I am rather shocked with how easy (so far – but I haven’t gotten to the zipper, pockets, or lining, lol) it is and how quick the bodice came together! I like how the pattern is sized like a normal pattern but also has cup sizes. I am between cup sizes, so I went with the larger one for now. I feel like the bodice might be a little large, but I will have a better idea when I get the skirt attached and install the zipper.
I hope to find some time this week to keep working on it, but school is pretty time demanding, as well as still trying to fit in a good workout every night after work – and before cooking dinner.
