HI DARLINGS! This gorgeous poplin print dress was a winner when I made it the first time and it’s still a hit now. This is McCalls 7974 and I love the fit and style of this dress. The fabric is from our shop MELANATEDFABRICS.COM and it is a beautiful RAYON PRINT that we had in two colorways but the blue one has since sold out. I was really tempted to make the same sleeve again because they are just so fun and ad a lot to the dress but I decided to make the longer view instead which has bias binding finish.

GORGEOUS POPLIN PRINT DRESS PATTERN REVIEW

This pattern is not very complicated but there are a few things to keep in mind. You want to make sure to fit the bodice as you are making it so that you can make adjustments as you go. The midriff pattern pieces make this very flattering but could be a little tricky when looking at the illustration. Just make sure to align your notches as you pin because they will be a big help. Once you are done with the bodice the rest of the dress comes together very quickly. Depending on the sleeve you choose you can make this rather quickly.

THE POPLIN PRINT FABRIC

I love this print so much, it is bold and bright. I want to make one in a solid fabric because I think it is such a flattering dress to wear. Maybe a silky fabric would make this evening wear appropriate!

STYLING THIS GORGEOUS POPLIN PRINT DRESS

I kept things simple with my nude heels and some bright orange sunglasses. I love these gold layered necklaces so much. I also think you could wear this with a denim jacket and some converse or even with some raw hem cropped jeans. I might try to photograph this dress in a variety of looks because it seems from my comments on Instagram that you guys like seeing the variety.
