Stone Goth - McCalls 6112

I decided to go with the stones and I'm so glad I did. It's a great balance for the skirt. I was attracted to this pattern because of the sleeve slits. The person at JoAnn's tried to convince me that the black fabric is matte jersey...it isn't. Matte jersey is a single knit. This fabric is a double knit--a lightweight one but just the same a double knit.


I went totally Goth with my nail polish, accessories, and lipstick. Why did I even have this color lipstick? The more I look at it the more I like it!



 Guess I shouldn't chew gum while being photographed.

The only alterations I made on the pattern were adding 1" to the front and back bodice and a "cheater" FBA by simply adding 1" to the center front gradually blending back to the side seam.

This dress was quick and easy and a different style to add to my wardrobe. I don't think I'll make it again but you never know!

  2. I had to go and look at the pattern and I still can't believe you made this gorgeous dress from that pattern. I love that you used two different fabrics. I love that you added the jeweled embellishment at the neck. And I'm jealous that you found the perfect belt for it...especially the belt part because i haven't used one of them in years! *LOL*

  6. Your dress turned out cute indeed! And glad you didn't listen to the "nay-sayers" and used the stones because they turned out lovely (wink)! Like Eugenia said, I never paid much attention to this pattern either. Thanks for shining a light on it:)
