DIY SIDE CUT OUT DRESS USING MCCALLS #8175
HI DARLINGS! I have been MIA from the blog for a while. There has been a lot going on recently and so I haven’t had much time to create. I took a breather over the past week to sew a dress I have had my eye on, McCalls #8175 which half the sewing community has made already, LOL!
This is a relatively easy pattern, the fitting is easy because you can just take in the side seams if you need to. I wasn’t sure if I would need to do my standard sway back adjustment but the skirt sits in the perfect spot so I didn’t need to do anything. I ended up taking the side seam in a bit at the waist and on the bodice about 1/2′ for a snug fit but aside from that it was pretty straight forward. I also decided to use to gold buttons instead of the hook and eye.
