My Pattern Reviews - McCalls 5425

Pattern Description:

Misses/Miss Petite pullover dress.

Pattern Sizing:

Sizes (6-8-10-12-14)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

I made View C, with the length of View A. The finished dress looked exactly like the photo on the pattern envelop.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

The instructions were very easy to follow. I really just scanned them over at the beginning and reaaly did not refer to them during the construction

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

This is a great pattern for making relaxing summer pullovers. It only take less than 1.5 yards to make the view that I did, and this dress can be made in less than a couple of hours. A great project for beginners.

Fabric Used:

I believe it is a polyester/rayon. I purchased on clearance from Hancock fabrics for $2/yard.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

No alterations were made.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I have plans to make it again.


This patterns allows for creativity in creating both casual and formal wear; the selection of fabric makes the style you wish to create.

  1. Seeing your dress makes me want to make this again. If I can find my pattern, maybe I'll be able to get this done this weekend.
