As you all know, I am currently working on a serious project, one which will only get on the machine in about a weeks time. In the meantime though, I wanted to sew a quick and fun thing, one which does not involve any major calculations. A quick fix if you will. I decided to try the Mccalls 6559 maxi dress pattern. This pattern is quite similar to one of my all time fave patterns, the Mission Maxi. They are literally the same dress, the only difference being the racer back of the mission Maxi is smaller than that of the McCalls pattern. Oh, and the McCalls pattern is easier to sew. Instead of a neck and armhole binding used in the Mission Maxi dress, this one just asks you to fold the fabric over and do a narrow hem. Easy peesy.
I had seen a couple of black and white maxi dresses on pinterest, so when I saw this fabric, I knew exactly what I was going to make with it.
Right, I better get back to my lace dress now. Expect to see one or two really quick makes over the coming weeks, as well as the multi coloured dress I am making for the Minerva Craft bloggers network. I suppose I should start thinking of autumn sewing now…eeek….I want summer to last forever.
