Title: Pink Paisley Shirt Dress - McCall's 6696
Post by: tendstowardschaos on August 08, 2018 01:21:55 PM
After my DS2 was born, and I was still carrying around some extra baby weight, I cut this dress out. I started it, barely, then set is aside for whatever reason...

*two years later*

I lost weight, I injured myself, I gained some back. I picked the dress back up and finished it. It's a tad bit big, but wearable. Yay! I have a wedding to attend in a couple months and I might just wear this dress. It has pockets! :D

The pattern is McCall's 6696, the fabric is a cotton/linen blend that I got on clearance at JoAnn's. I altered the spacing of the buttons and finished all of the seams.

Beautiful! Perfect for dressing up or down. I bet the fabric feels lovely.

It's dresses like this that make me so envious that I am not skilled enough to sew clothes. So cute! Those colors are awesome too.

The fabric is so soft and airy! It was a really great find.

That's beautiful - both the sewing and the fabric!  :)
