McCall’s 6744 Pattern Review

I made this mock wrap dress for a Saturday evening bridal shower back in July of 2014.  I chose this fabric color because they were the colors of the wedding, black, red, and white.  I received a lot of compliments on the dress and when people found out I made it, they really became excited.

Pattern: M6744 VIEW D

Pattern Description:  Pull over dress with elasticized waist, mock wrap, very loose-fitting bodice with elasticized shoulders.

Pattern Sizing: I cut size XXL, next time I will go down a size smaller

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes this is a super simple pattern.  I completed it in 3 hours.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved how the shoulder came out with the elastic.  I was very proud of myself

Fabric Used: Cotton Jersey Knit from Hancock Fabrics

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not add elastic to the waist because I knew I was going to wear this with a belt.  Other than that I followed all other instructions.  For some reason I ran out of fabric, so I had to run and get more.  Thank God the store still had plenty.

Would you sew it again? Sure will.  I want to make another long version and a short version

Would you recommend it to others? Yes

Happy Sewing,
