Happy Friday!! I just love this look. I know I should be focusing more toward the upcoming season, but summer is not over yet!! LOL! Don't get me wrong, I'm really excited this year to make some jackets, sweaters, and some lasting pieces for my wardrobe, but its still warm here in the south! You know my motto...suns out, shoulders out. LOL! (I just made that up!!)Read More
Hey everybody!! I'm back!! I had the best time in LA!! The conference was amazing! The instructors, vendors, fashion show, shopping, everything was awesome!! It was so great to meet my sew sisters!! The amount of love you all showed me was overwhelming in the best way!! I was so humbled and grateful! It encouraged and motivated me to keep going! Thank you!
Today I'm talking about McCalls 7543! Clearly I love me some denim, and off-the-shoulder dresses and tops! This pattern is a quick and easy sew thats great to throw on and go in! I made View D with View B sleeves!
Like I said, this is a easy dress to sew, however I found forming the narrow hem around the curve of the sleeve to be a bit tedious and annoying! I got through it though using tons of pins. I think lining the sleeves would be a great option to eliminate the narrow hem, and give it a nice clean finish. The Sew With Me video for this pattern is at the end of the post! Note: I did split the sleeve in the video, but it can be lined without splitting it, if the split sleeve look is not your style.
Let me know if you make this dress, I would love to see your version of it!! Hope you have a great day, and I'll talk to you in the next post!
