DIY Red Neoprene Dress!12:00 AM
Mood Fabrics, it also gives you the option of color blocking and interesting fabric placements.
OOP McCall's 5753. This is a pattern that I found in my pattern cabinet that I've had for about 5 or 6 years. I can't believe this pattern is OOP because it should be considered a classic since it offers 3 bodices variations, 3 sleeves, a sleeveless option, straight skirt with or without pockets and instructions to create your own belt. I feel like I rediscovered a jewel! I'll be using this one often from now on. For my bodice, I choose the v-neck and I added an inch to the waist. My sleeve started out as a 3/4 length, but I shortened it to above the elbow... for my own comfort. I cut my normal size 14. But I found that it was still a large and I had to take it in at the side seams.
McCall's 6842. I used a slightly shortened version of view B. I graded from the 14 to the 16. I could've just stuck with the 14 only. I also had to take in the side seams. This is my first time cutting this pattern, so I don't know if my sizing issues is the pattern or the fabric choice since it was designed for a woven... so proceed with caution.
