This is McCall's 6355. What I like most about this pattern is that it works for a knit or a woven. It has horizontal and vertical darts in the front and vertical darts in the back. I used the horizontal dart which gave the dress some shaping in the bust area. And it didn't distort the stripes of the fabric much.
I bought the fabric from Hancock. What I didn't notice until I got to the cutting table is that the stripes run on the grain, instead of selvage to selvage. Minor irritation. Since this jersey is 100% cotton, I didn't have to worry about it stretching one way or the other. I bought enough to ensure that my garment would have horizontal stripes. I added an inch or so to the length. But other than that, this sewed straight from the envelope.
This is how I finished the neckline.
I was going for a nautical look. I've been seeing that style so frequently from J. Crew and I wanted to put something together that was similar. I even found a nautical-inspired rope necklace!
