My new favorite pattern

October 16, 2016

McCall’s 7122. I LOVE this pattern. It’s an A-line dress with raglan sleeves. It’s a fast, easy pattern that produces a dress with great lines. Get ready because I will be making this one over and over and over again.

The fabric is a digitally printed neoprene from Mood. I bought this fabric about 9 months ago, but it was so beautiful I was scared to cut it. I finally worked my nerve and am so grateful to the fabric gods that this attempt worked out.

I made length B with long sleeves. Although my measurements line up with the medium size, I checked out PatternReviw and decided to cut a small based on other reviews. I’m glad I did–the small fit perfectly. There’s a lot of ease in this pattern. Because of the ease and loose fit, I did not add the slit in the back–the dress didn’t need it.  I also added cuffs just because. Actually, I felt like the cuffs matched the raglan sleeves.

This was such a satisfying sew! I’m actually looking forward to work tomorrow sew I can wear my new dress!!
