Finished

I finished my red version of McCall's 6331. I modified it a little bit. I changed the skirt to a circle skirt. I'm so excited to wear this out.

I think the topstitching on this looks better than on the white version. I also used a bit less padding in the bust. I used a white facing because I didn't think I'd have enough red after cutting the skirt. I know realize that I would have. I may try to squeeze a shell top out of the left over fabric.


I hand-picked the zipper. I think this is going to be a great summer dress.

I am so impressed! This dress is perfect and looks like a dress I recently saw bloggers wearing from Lulu's for over 100$. You are a master and red looks really good on you. This dress is a classic.
