Spring has sprung

McCall's 5975

Pattern Description: Close-fitting dresses A, B, C, D, E with waistline seam, neckline variations, back zipper closing and mid-knee lengths; dress A is sleeveless; dress B has cap sleeves with pleats; dresses C, D have three-quarter length sleeves; dress E has long sleeves; dresses C, D, E have tie belt


I made view C with the long sleeves

Pattern Sizing: 8-24, I made 14

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? almost exactly since I used the same fabric!


Were the instructions easy to follow? (sorry) but I didn't use them. the dress is fairly simple & has very few pieces - the front are cut on the fold the backs are cut with a center seam, then you have two sleeves.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I needed something to "spring" me into spring mode & this was it! I was really attracted to the bold print used on the pattern envelope so I just went with it. This dress would be a great LBD & it's very work friendly.

Fabric Used: "fashion" knit from Joann's

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I left off the back zipper since my fabric had plenty of stretch & was lightweight. I really think there is absolutley NO NEED for a zipper unless you line this dress.



Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I'd make it again, I think it could be pretty flattering for a lot of people. full figured and slim figured. My shape is like an H (not slim, not big) and I think I look pretty great in it.



Conclusion: I got many compliments when wering it so I think it's a keeper!
