Ahh we are at the end of the Summer Dreaming Dress Series. I hoped you enjoyed the dresses I made and loved wearing this summer. Next year I hope to post them earlier in the summer so you can have the time to possibly make them your self.
Our last dress is McCalls 7745 view D and she is a beauty. And lovely enough she is still in stock on the McCalls website so check her out here: https://somethingdelightful.com/m7745 You can put her in your stash for next year.
The description describes it as, “Close fitting wrap dresses have neckline and sleeve variations, and ribbon ties. A, C, D:Shaped hemline, wrong side of fabric will show. Includes separate pattern pieces for A/B, C, and D cups.”
She is pure loveliness. Very feminine and summery. I loved view A and B but I wanted a dress I could wear that would be a bit more covered up. With a cami underwear I can wear this to church.
I really liked that this pattern had the different bust sizes included and it was a great fit when I made it. Now just like the other dresses it is a bit big. Yes I know you are tired of hearing it but just in case next year someone comes back and is confused I want them to know it is too big in the pictures.
I have had this fabric for years and it was from Joann’s but I did happen to find it again recently so check for it. It was a light crepe fabric and lined the bodice with a Rayon. Yes it can be a little warm for outdoor activities but inside it is a beautiful and comfortable dress.
Well this concludes my Summer Dreaming Dress Series. I hope you enjoyed.
