Happy Friday!!! Hope you had a great week, and getting excited for some greens, beans, tomatoes....LOL!!! I couldn't resist, it's on all my timelines!!! LOL!! But back to this dress! McCalls 7430 is a MUST buy pattern. I'm a sweater dress fan, so I bought it just off that fact, but I'm recommended it because its simply a great pattern to have in your stash.
The directions are easy to follow, and it comes together quick! I will say a true beginner may be hesitant because of the addition seam lines, but a confident beginner should have success with it. Just make sure to either keep your pattern piece pinned to the fabric, or mark your pattern number on your fabric. The pieces look similar and you don't want to sew the back in the front or vise versa.
I used a quilted diamond knit from Joanns for my dress. If you buy this fabric for this dress, be aware of the stretch for the turtleneck. I nearly passed out trying to squeeze it over my head, so I had to adjust that to fit better. Overall, I love this dress and I will definitely be making it again!!
Enjoy your weekend, and stay safe!! I'll see you all in the next post!!
