McCalls 5576

So I wasn't completely useless this week. I finished McCalls 5576. I altered the pattern slightly to make a shirt for my sister which came out really nice. I wasn't able to take a pic before she left but I used a black and white retro print and a black contrasting fabric for the neck yolk and sleeve bands. She liked it which says a lot since she doesn't hesitate to turn her nose up and something in a heartbeat.

Anyway here is the dress I made. I didn't really make any changes to it except omitting the zipper. It was already short enough and with the material I didn't feel a FBA was necessary. The sleeves came out a little funky but I will admit I just kinda winged it on those so I'm not mad. Overall I think it cam out nice. I plan to make it again in a funky print for myself before retiring it. It's one of those dresses that screams 70's so I'll wear it while the trend is semi hot and then let it rest.
