How about this


I'm making the dress, w/o the ties in the front.

I'm about to make the top, without the ties, which is basically the dress, but with a short 'skirt' instead of a full length one.

Fancy a sewalong?

I was looking to make this dress...


It's McCalls 3584.  Same dress, just a different company.  Can I still play?

Great!  So what do I do.  Just sew the dress together, and post pics?  Or do we move at a certain pace?  (I'm new at this -- and sewing for that matter!)

Anyhow, now I guess I just have to chose what kind of fabric I want to use. 

I have a black and white flowery type (The same stuff used in the pattern pic) But it's stretchy, and i'm afraid of it! lol And I have this cool pinkish red stuff.  It's not so stretchy, so I might go with that one.  Pic of fabric below.   Also, I see this pattern wants a zipper.  I feel a slight ting of nervousness coming on... Embarrassed

Don't be scared about the stretchy material, i made the shirt pattern from this w/ stretchy fabric.

If you fabric is really stretchy you could not put a zipper in, or you could add an inch or two extra, instead of the zipper.  Only w/ the stretchy fabric though.

I like both fabrics.  I am making my dress w/ a non-stretchy fabric.

Yeah, you could just sew in together, and post pics, and if you have problems you could post and ask us.  I'm half way done w/ my dress, i have to sew the skirt on, put in a hem, and put in the zipper.

Have fun!   Smiley

Count me in too! I just bought that pattern last week!  How strange!

I've choose a light blue fabric (non-stretchy, light weight) for mine.  I am also making some minor changes: That top will make my chest look like a 10 years old boy's!  I'll lower that v-neck and raise the seam up in the middle below the v so that seam will be an inverted v.  I have to do that a lot.  Trials of being smaller than an A cup.  I'm also adding a "scarf" in a flower print that I plan to sew to the straps behind the neck.  I'm making it long so I can wrap it around my waist in funky ways.  If any of you have the May 2005 issue of InStyle, check out the sketches (not the way too sluty for real lift photo) on page 164. That's my plan.

SexiSadi, I have that pattern too. (McCalls 3584)
I've already made the straight dress and it turned out terribly. (It was WAY too short and boxy)
But I'm going to make the flowy one soon so I guess I'm in this one too.

i like stripes.
i make lotsa stuff. www.rustycuts.etsy.com

I'm moving house at the mo, but this is my first pattern once i get things sorted.  I don't have a table for cutting out on any more - the ex got custody of that!

NynaeveAS, I've got the opposite problem to you - anyone know how I can compensate for my 32F chest when making this?  My bust measurement is 40inches, and my underbust is 32 inches, with a 27inch waist.  Apparetly I need to go via my bust measurement as far as sizing goes, but I get the feeling that doing that with no modifications will just leave me with with a top that is too big around the under bust and waist.

I've got some nice pinstriped (black pin on white) cotton for this top, but I was wondering if it's worth having a test go first with something else...  probably time to go old sheet hunting for a test one then!
