I almost bought this exact pattern today at Hancock's. They have Mccall's patterns on for 99 cents, and I'm going back tomorrow to get some more (since they only let you get five at a time).

Anyway, your results look great so I might consider getting this pattern.

I love the look with the white jacket - very summery and city outfit-ish. Cheesy

Gorgeous!  This looks fantastic on you!

I bought the same pattern, and I cut it out on Friday, and I've been sewing on it off and on since then.  I'm making the same type, but doing the one with the different edge fabric on bottom.  It's the first thing I've done with a full lining on the bodice.

I'm glad to see this had some ease it in actually. . .

So far, I'm surprised at how well it's coming out. I've got the top sewn together, and I'm working on the skirt now.  BUT, I have to stop  Embarrassed .  The kids want to go to Nana's to go swimming.  I hope mine turns out as well as yours! I'll have to check the skirt, and see if I have the same problem you had.

WOW! This pattern just arrived in the post today.
Can you tell me are the sizings American. I'm in UK so these would be different right?
I bought pattern size 4-6-8-10
So I assume that it's US sizes as there are not many size 4 girls that's for sure! (That's like a us 0!)

fluffypinkthings, I imagine you've worked out the measurements by now, but here's the McCall's Pattern sizing page: http://www.mccallpattern.com/charts/bmisses.htm

I check each brand's sizing before buying a pattern and *definitely* before cutting. The sizes sold in stores now are so different from the sizes on patterns. I wear a US 10, but I'm a 14, 16 or even an 18 in pattern sizes!

very very pretty! I like the print... it's cold, snowy and windy here and that dress looks very warm weather inviting!

great job!

"less than perfect sewing skills". . .

I am definitely a beginner sewer, although I'm ok with the zipper deal. BUT I have not had great luck with patterns for myself (ok, with the one skirt pattern I tried) but did ok with the pattern I used for my 18 month old's overalls.

So how less than perfect are your skills, i.e. comparable to someone making a few easy things for about 4 months? I LOVE the look of your dress, but is it a more intermediate pattern? I think I'm getting a dressform for XMas, so maybe that will help get things fitted right.

Thanks and enjoy your beautiful dress!

I'm having serious dress envy at the moment.  I'm an absolute beginner sewer and should be let nowhere near a real pattern.  However, seeing this is gonna inspire me to keep practicing on the little stuff so I can work my way up to something this pretty.

i just got this pattern, i'm making it for practice in an odd cotton print with old mirrors on it (hope that made sense) and eventually for reals in a lighter tree print fabric. (i'm doing veiw D)

i had the same issue with the skirt pieces not fitting on a 45" wide fabric.  but because i'm just doing this to get the fit right now, i'm doing the dress F bottom, which has a contrast band. only i'm just going to do the band in the same print and not really worry about it...

i'm oging to vietnam for a couple weeks, so i'll be stuck at the waiting-to-be-sewn stage for a while, but i think it looks like a really fun pattern, and i cant wait to see what everyone makes!!

Awesome dress and it looks great on you.  I am certainly looking for this pattern as soon as I can get to the store.
