McCalls dress 6696

A review of McCalls Dresses and Slip M6696

Reviewed by SewSarahSmith on 17th May, 2017

Making this dress has pushed me to really focus on fit and I’m so happy with how it’s, finally, turned out! I made one, not so wearable muslin and two further bodice toiles to get the fit that I wanted. I ended up sizing down overall; doing a narrow shoulder adjustment, sway back adjustment, taking out the gathers from centre back, making a mandarin collar and raising the armholes. I’m so happy with what I’ve learned! This is the happiest I’ve been in a ‘proper’ dress since I wore my wedding dress (which I did not make!)
