Documenting my sewing adventures, and the ins and outs of learning to adjust patterns for a perfect fit.

3rd Project McCall 6754! For you My DOLL I DO!!!



   Back again, I sewed this McCall 6754 for my lovely daughter, a couple weeks ago. Originally I bought the pattern to do view C, because I saw it on Mimi G blog HERE but my daughter caught a glimpse of the envelope, and she requested View D. She had chosen, a chevron ity knit, but after I cut it out and attempted to sew the first piece it wasn't working well, so I pulled out a heavier knit, and went to work. 

  I was so proud of myself, because I completed the complete dress in one evening, my daughter was gone with her father for the weekend, by the time she return she had her dress... hemmed and all!! 
The only thing I didn't do with the dress that the direction called for was put the elastic in. I also wanted to do short sleeves but since it was HER dress, I followed her requested.
I think the dress dips a little low in the front, so if I make it again I will add a inch or so to the pattern.
                                         Other than that I was very happy with this project.

Only mishaps I had was I kinda burnt the lining, when I ironing something I forgot to use my pressing cloth. 
I'm not sure if I was suppose to hem it with the lining, or if it was to be two separate pieces but I hemmed the lining in with the bottom hem LOL. 
Oh I almost forgot well I DID!! I did my first ever dart in this pattern!! so this newbie, can check shoulder dart off the list... lol

She wore this dress this weekend for a Quinceanera, I thought she would feel it wasn't dressy enough but she put on leather vest, and wore it. no belt..Happy Child equals a Happy Parent

Tell me what you think? I will master the hem one day, one day!!
