Yet another McCalls 7122
I did it again. I think this is the fourth time for this particular dress, but I just love it so much. It’s so easy to sew. Plus, it makes such a great work dress. And when I wear a dress to work, picking out clothes is so much easier–I only have to choose one piece of clothing (not two or three.) And it’s so comfortable. And it’s knit (or in this case scuba/neoprene) so I don’t have to iron it. I know what you’re thinking, I’m trying to justify my problem. Yes, I am.
This is also a good pattern for showing off groovy fabric. The front of this dress is one large panel, so it was the perfect pattern for showing of this amazing fabric from Mood. My husband got me this fabric for Christmas. Well actually, he got me a gift certificate from Mood, which in my book is even better than buying me actual fabric! I love Mood’s printed neoprenes. The designs are super cool and the weight of the fabric is perfect for dresses like 7122. See:
I made view B with long sleeves. I added cuffs to the sleeves, widened the neckband, and coverstitched the hem.
Three hours–from the time I unfolded my pattern pieces to the moment I clipped the coverstitch threads–that’s all it took!
