Happy to introduce the newest item of my wardrobe: a wrap dress. That I made. Yup, Okay, at this point no one is surprised anymore, right? This week’s creation is a McCall 6959 wrap dress from their most recent Summer collection. I bought it on one of their $3,99 sales and could not be happier with this pattern. It was incredibly easy to make (despite some mistakes on my part), and I love the end result. There are things I wish that were better, of course, for example, I think the top should fit more snuggly, but I guess that’s a problem with all wrap dresses. Maybe I should just make my next wrap dress with knit, so then I can just sew it shut. I might just do that.
Anyway, here are some pictures from the dress, taken in Park City this past weekend.
I made this dress with a rayon challis I bought that is just a dream it’s so soft. So so so so soft, and super flowy. I love it. I have so much of it, I made this dress, a shirt for my mom, a Belcarra Blouse for me (to be blogged) and I still have some left. The fabric that keeps on giving! Good thing I like it so much! Another thing I love about this dress was that I attempted a new technique for the hem, one that works especially well for thin and flowy fabrics like this one. It worked like a charm, and it gives the bottom of the dress some extra something, does that make sense? Sometimes words are hard.
