McCalls 6752

This will surely be one of the best patterns of 2013 and I just had to try it.







Pattern Description:
Misses' pullover tops and dresses have neckline variations and elasticized (seamed) waist.
Pattern Sizing:
6-22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I think so
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't use the instructions
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the simple styling. I didn't like the fullness in the bodice
Fabric Used:
ITY knit gifted to me from Sheila at Sheilaz- CTK
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I started with a 1" FBA which I really didn't need because of the ease already added to the pattern. I raised the underarm about 3/4" of an inch and it is still a little low for my taste. In my opinion the skirt is super short so I added 4".
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
When I first made and wore this dress I hated it. It was headed for the trash. I had forgone the elasticized waist but decided to add it before I tossed it into File 13. I'm glad I did. The elastic made all the difference in the world. I sewed clear elastic into the waist seam.
Conclusion:
This is bound to be one of the best patterns of 2013 so jump on the bandwagon before it's gone.
