Vintage Vogue Dress Pattern Giveaway and New McCalls Dress
vintage Vogue giveaway patterns Please take a moment to look at these vintage Vogue patterns I'm giving away and add a comment explaining which one you would like. Even if you don't want to sew the particular dress, there are some great designer details in these patterns.
Speaking of dresses, this is my latest version of McCalls 6201. I lowered the front neckline curve 1 1/2" and like the open neck much more. What a loud, fun print! It's leftover cotton lycra which may have come from Walmart, from a project about 6 years ago. It is a very stretchy woven fabric....so stretchy that I didn't even need to put a zipper in this dress. I didn't have any stretch lining fabric on hand so it's unlined. Probably will only last a season or two, but it's a versatile, easy summer look. I'm starting to understand why so many sewers like summer dresses. It was the perfect project to make in the last days before we cleaned, packed and said good bye to our FL condo for the summer season.
