M5974 take 2

This is a second and less detailed review for McCall's 5974. You can see my original review here.

Pattern Description: Misses dress with bodice variations, front pleats, neckline variations, self-faced midriff, pleated skirt front, back zipper and sleeves in three lengths. I made view D which has a wrapped bodice, v-neck, self-ties and long sleeves.

Pattern Sizing: 8-16; 18W-24W. This time I cut a 14.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't actually use this instruction this time since I had just made another version a few weeks ago. But the instructions are very well written and make sewing this dress a breeze.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? You can see my original review for the whole list but basically I love the whole dress.

Fabric Used: A brown 'optic matte jersey' print from Joann's. I love the earthy tones of the fabric.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I shorted the skirt and added about an inch to the bodice so I could cross it over a bit more for modesty.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I still want this in a solid color but I have some other projects I want to knock out first. I do highly recommend this to others.

Bottom Line:

Fabric: 3 yds @ 6.49/yd = $19.47
Notions: thread from my stash
Total: $19.47

That's a really beautiful dress - I really like this pattern and must get around to making it up myself. I love the fabric you have chosen, the colours are lovely.
