A review of McCalls Dresses M8211
Well dang, my review disappeared while I was uploading! I don’t want to re-type all of that, so I’ll just say that I caused a lot of issues for myself while making it. But despite that, this is a pattern I will make again and again, because all the elastic and shirring make it easy to fit, even as my body grows and changes.
Shirred waist & edge ruffles were my main mods. I couldn’t do the tiered skirt I wanted due to severe lack of fabric, so I instead pieced together a short skirt from scraps I had left over.
