TA DA!!!!! McCall's M4769 Is DONE!!!
And here I am wearing the dress. Excuse the lack of face... I was having a bad face day. ;)
Here's a close up of the buttons (which I <3).
SHEW!! It feels SOOOOOOOOOOOO good to have that done! :) As you can tell I made some adjustments from the original pattern.... No collar or lapel and I added the bias tape. It made the dress a tad bit too roomy in the neck but I think I can fix that.
I think the adjustments make it look even MORE vintage than the original. It's definitely giving me a 50's feel
Here's a pic of the original pattern.
I know I said I was going to make this
Easy (HA! Not THAT easy) McCall's M6197
out of this
But I feel the need to go with simple for a bit. All the sick kids and sick Hubby.... Now I am starting to get a sore throat! YILES!!! So I will be keeping it simple for the next few days. And I REALLLLY need to get my VBS lessons down. I volunteered to teach the 4/5's this year... I'm a little afraid.... The enthusiasm I received when I said I would take that age group fell only slightly short of a standing ovation... Yeah.. A little afraid... I think they know something I don't... LOL
So....I will be making this instead.
I'll be making the blue dress only in sparkly pink knit!! :) LOVE PINK!! It's Easy (YAY!!!) McCall's M6074.
And for the kiddos I will go with pillowcase dresses for c1 and a pair of pillowcase shorts for c2 using these....
I LOVE the details of that one. Here's a close up! ;)
And for c2's shorts...
