Since Joann's had all the McCalls patterns for 99 cents, I bought several.

This is 5314, a wrap dress that takes 5 yards of fabric. I changed up the layout by moving the one facing that's cut on the bias to a double cut of the piece that was half the length. It allowed me to get all of the pieces onto the fabric folded in half, instead of cutting almost everything out twice like their layout suggested.


and here it is! Sorry about the lackluster picture.
I'd make the dress again in a heartbeat, especially if I can find suitable fabric for $1.50/yard again!

Your dress turned out really cute! It's always hard to get a real idea of a pattern from the envelope. If you don't mind me asking, what size did you make?  Smiley

Your dress looks great!  I just made this dress and yours looks much better than mine.  I used a heavy-ish linen and as a result the skirt is REALLY full... not sure if I like it or not.  But the pattern was pretty easy to follow so maybe I'll make it again in a lighter fabric 'cause yours looks fabulous!

ps- you're right about the cutting layout... I scrapped that plan and doubled up the fabric for cutting and it was much easier!

That's fantastic! I have to go to a wedding in just a few weeks and I was thinking about making that dress. Great to see it on a real person and excellent work!
