Speaking of McCall's 5425...


Look what I found!

Elegant & Easy Dress from Martha Stewart

Now I can REALLY resist the temptation!!!

I printed & read the instructions. I already have the fabric in my stash. I just need to get the ribbon.

I finished going through my stash this afternoon and just like I guessed I had about 2 trash bags full. I did however go from 9 space bags to 6 and I also emptied out a plastic 3-drawer chest and now I'm down to 2 yit-dee-dee!

I did find that I do have quite a few nice pieces - mostly silky poly prints - which is good because I want to make a couple more of McCall's 5388 to wear with capris this summer.

P.S. My cabinet is scheduled to arrive tomorrow between 9am-12pm est. Can't you tell I'm excited!!! The bad news is, that it's graduation weekend for little sis, so I won't be able to tackle it until next week sometime.

I have been searching all over the internet for a pattern like this but, I want to make it in silk overlayed with chiffon, with a satin ribbon for the neckline/straps. I want the dress to be more of an a-line shape and at least twice as much fabric but I am no expert at making or altering patterns. Any help, or ideas?
