McCall's 6920 - A Wardrobe Builder!

 I chose to style the dress with natural and yellow accessories.







Pattern Description: MISSES'/MISS PETITE/WOMEN'S/WOMEN'S PETITE DRESSES: Dresses (close-fitting through bust) have neckline variations, princess seams and back zipper. B: self-lined sleeves. A and D: fitted through hips, back hemline slit. Designed for medium weight woven fabrics. SUGGESTED FABRICS: Cotton Blends, Poplin, Linen and Gabardine.


Pattern Sizing: B5 (8-10-12-14-16) RR (18W-20W-22W-24W) - I cut and make the size 12, but had to take it in a little in the side of the bodice. I will probably make the 10 the next time around

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I chose to make View B; and Yes the dress I made looked very much like the photo on the pattern envelop.



Were the instructions easy to follow?The instructions were very easy to follow; though after reading over them initially, I just glanced at them a couple of time. The pieces are simple and come together easily.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? There is nothing that I particularly disliked about the pattern. I think that this is a great wardrobe builder. The dress could be paired with a sweater/cardigan or a jacket.

Fabric Used:I used a Ponte Knit purchased about a year ago from Fabricmart.com. I have decided to sew my stash this summer.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did make the petite adjustments for the bodice area. I did not make a muslin and believe the fit came out fine; I will fine tune the fit though. I found that I could have make about 1/2 inch adjustment in the should length.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I do plan to make it again. I have an the Ponte Knit in an electric blue and plan to make View A in that color.





Conclusion: I love this dress. It is fun and easy to make, but has a classic appeal. Another reason that I like it, is that instead of princess seams, which I really need to work on, it has the seams from the shoulder to the hem. This is really easy sewing at it's best. I recommend this patter highly.
