McCalls 6350

I really like this dress. Its a good combo of fabric and pattern. My main fabric is a cotton from A&K fabrics. I love it! The print is great and its good quality. My lining is a silk cotton blend from Mood. I made View C. I made slight changes. I cut the hem at the petite line and instead of having the single halter I turned it into a tie. I also hand picked the zipper.



When I did my muslin I cut a straight size 12 which normally works but the cups were giant. So I cut those in a 10 and curved the bodice piece from 10 at the top to 12 at the waist and it worked out fine. This was my first time using boning and I like it. I also put in a waist stay I think next time I would need to make the waist stay tighter. I wore it strapless to my friends' mom's wedding and it stayed up.
I really love this print. I have a little left over so maybe a pencil skirt.

Retired Clothes

I've been rearranging my room and I went through my closet. There are clothes that I don't wear anymore but can't bear to part with. So I retired them, I got the idea from my stepdad he has done this with some of his
This is the first dress I made. It's not my style anymore but it really shows how far I've come in my sewing. The jacket got me through the first 2 years of high school.
This is my first DVF dress and I thought was the best dress I'd ever seen but all the dots are falling off.
Do you retire clothes?
