Paige sent me McCall's 6696, a darling shirtwaist dress pattern. (To see what I sent her, go here.)
And here's my version:
I just adore shirtwaist dresses! So classic! This pattern came with separate pieces for A, B, C, and D cup sizes and I decided to give it a whirl without an FBA. And it came out great!
I have to admit that I was a bit nervous before I started. It's been so long since I've sewn with a Big 4 pattern that I really had to pay attention and think through sizing again.
It turned out quite nicely though. I just adore that this dress has pockets! I also love wearing this dress with a belt to help break up the print a bit.
Today I went for a retro casual look rather than full on vintage. This dress is great for walking on either side of that line.
Thanks, Paige, for being Sew Bossy!
