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

Houndstooth Love McCall's M6884 Revisited

Good Evening

Let me start of by saying that I love houndstooth, and you will probably see me in this print a lot. 
I also love wrap dresses, I think every woman should have 1 or 15,000.  Okay maybe not 15,000 but for me it's a staple style. 

I decided to give Mccall M6884, another go, I remember this dress being one of my first patterns, and one that I said I would never sew again. But here I am, and oddly I made the same view this time. Talk about eating your words. 
I'm mentally preparing myself for Fall, so I wanted a dress that could easily transition to cooler weather. So I added the sleeves, from View B, and I also did a full arm/bicep adjustment. Actually I did two in one day, one for a Vogue pattern and this one. I will post about that separately. 

I absolutely love this dress, this fabric is from Fabric Mart. It is listed as a 
Item #Black/Off -White Houndstooth Print Poly/Lycra ITY Knit, it feels like heaven to me. Not that I actually know what heaven feels like.... But I will give out hugs when I wear this dress.
