I found this great anarchy print cotton jersey at Fabric Fairy, and I just had to have it! I think it goes without saying that I have a rebellious side! I thought it was a perfect fabric for the bodice of McCall’s 5700. Here’s the finished dress:
I tried it on and I just love it! (I don’t have a photographer to take a pic and I can’t get the self-portrait via timer thing right.) I used a ponte de roma for the skirt. The bodice is self lined except for the front, but it’s pleated so that helps. The only real dislike is that the armholes are a little big. Everything went smoothly until I hemmed the dress and my black thread kept breaking. Grrrr!
Here’s my review on Pattern Review.
