Here's another take on Mccalls 6886 that I made for a friend. She was inspired by my Butterick 5672 which was sewn using a novelty print. The fabric for this version is a fun novelty blk/wht print in a stretch cotton with a liquid faux leather contrasting midriff.
Never thought I'd find myself slicing & dicing ... however, I made sure to keep flat measuring as I went along. I did cut the back with a center back seam, thinking a zipper would be needed, but it wasn't necessary. Thereafter, construction went seamlessly as I basted the corresponding upper front, middle & bottom pieces first, then the upper back, middle & bottom, shoulder seams and lastly the side seams.
The dress seams were serged and its unlined. For the neckline, I did a lil snipping at center front to add a lil somethin' different to the neckline. The neckline, sleeve hems and dress hem were folded 1/2" to the inside and final stitched.
Being a working woman, mom & wife, she needs the ease of simple pieces that will make her mornings hassle free.
Of course, I had to make the photo taking and editing fun and switched out the background... she loves it.
Have a Great Evening !
