Pattern: McCall's 6319, View C
Pattern Sizing: 8 - 22, I cut the 16.
Description: Fitted dress with tapered skirt has lined bodice and elasticized waist.
Did it look like the pattern envelope when you were done sewing it? Yes it does!
Fabric: Fuchsia Ponteroma (72% polyester/24% rayon/4% spandex).
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they were. They were extremely easy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I'm in the mood for things that are quick sews. (As much as I love to sew, the weather has been too lovely to be cooped up in my sewing room.) Things that can be easily laundered. I want to be a little dressy, but comfortable at the same time. And this dress qualifies. I didn't like that the pattern suggested lining the bodice.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made? I added 1" to the bodice pieces and 3" to the skirt. I also OMITTED the lining. There was absolutely no need for this fabric to have a lining especially since I made this dress to wear during the spring and summer. Maybe if it were a lightweight knit, I could see it. And I added clear elastic to stabilize the shoulder seams and the neckline.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I wouldn't sew this view, but I'll probably make View A as well. And I do recommend it.
