Pattern Review: McCalls 7194
I have finally blogged! So I have to admit I finished this dress back in January but haven't gotten round to posting it.
I decided to make McCalls 7194 as my sewing mojo had been low and I fancied some instant gratification. I cut a 14 all over and lengthened it to make it a dress. The only other alteration I made was to take off some of the length of the shoulders as the seam sat quite low on me.
The fabric was purchased from Textile Centre in Walthamstow priced at £2.75 per yard. I really wasn't sure about the fabric and I think that it is still growing on me. The fabric is a super comfortable sweater knit though so that makes up for it.
This pattern is really easy as it doesn't include any notions, closures or darts. It all came together very quickly. I would definitely make this again and maybe try going down a size for a snug fit. I am sucker for cowl neck dresses as I really like the way they frame the face.
I made myself hem this dress so I could pack it for my holiday to Budapest. It kept me lovely and warm and was so comfy! This pattern is fab quick make and a design that lets the fabric take the centre stage.
I have another simple dress on my dummy that is waiting to be hemmed before I start on my spring and summer sewing!
