I've now made the dress up in style A from Mccalls 6154 sewing pattern. But I added the pockets from style C to the dress. I couldn't fine my iron-on stiffening I cut out for the front yolk. So instead I used a much stiffer one...That wasn't a good choice because it was like cardboard in the front and the back yolk was nice and soft.... This pattern is pretty much an easy sew, though slightly fiddly as smaller garments are. The finished dress looked a bit wide I thought, and I would have liked more gathers...
I was pleased with my fabric choice of baby pincord. Though I did have a bit of trouble with the front yolk, I had an excess of fabric when top stitching (but that was probably due to the cardboard stiffening causing problems). Overall I'd make sew this style again.
|Yes it's too big but then I thought it would|
be as it's a size 2. Her mum pinned her
up at the back... luckily she has a
big sister, she can wear it!
