FO McCall's 6264 - My Muumuu Maxi Dress



Don't let the title fool you - I really like my new dress. It was perfect for a casual Friday at work. The pattern was very simple and easy to put together (another midnight project for me) for a dress that will get a lot of use. I made a size 18, which is a bit loose on me. Next time around I will make a 16 and then take in a bit more at the sides by my waist for extra definition. I did a rolled hem on my serger for the hem. I would also pull in the 1/2 elastic a bit more next time, also. I was nervous to make it too tight, since I'm so large chested. It could have gone tighter without a worry.

Despite those change preferences, I like my current version - especially the length and color. Here's to more easy breezy projects in my near future.

Have a great weekend everyone and to all the Mother's out there - Happy Mother's Day!
