FO - McCall's 6559 version 7


Oh my stars and stripes, I've made another McCall's Maxi. Well, just the stripes, I guess. I didn't like how the large start looked on me, so I removed it.

This is a very comfy jersey knit that I picked up a few months back at the National City swap meet.



On a different note, the dress I was making for my HS reunion turned out to be a bust so I will need to cut a new dress pattern and fabric to sew up an alternative before I head out on Friday. Wish me luck....

Love this Lady!!! What a super cute dress! I'm going to need to catch up with you on making the maxi dresses. I've only got 2 under my belt. There's just so many options with it! BTW, hope your new reunion dress turns out perfectly;)

Love it! You love this pattern as much as I love V1250 and you've made so many different variations of it! It must be a timesaver in the morning,reaching for one of these lovelies!

This dress is fantastic! I've only made one version of this dress (actually two...but let's not talk about that big burn hole), but definitely plan on making more having seen your variations. I am SO copying the stripes!! Thanks for sharing.

You look great, and with your shades, all I could think of is movie star going incoginito. And I mean that as a compliment :)
