Can you tell I am in a casual sort of mood this week, I think all my “dressiness” was exhausted on Easter, LOL. This pattern is one of my favorites mainly because it is so comfy and although it is meant to be a dress I have only ever worn it as a top (Previously worn HERE) this pattern is UBER easy and GREAT project for BEGINNERS and since I did not review it when I made it last year I added a review for all my fab newbies who need a good easy pattern to work with.
Pattern: McCalls 6556
Pattern Sizing: I cut the 4
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yep. This is a really good beginner pattern because it is really easy to sew with a few straight lines and some neck binding, which a newbie you could even skip if you like the raw edge look.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that this is fast to make, easy and comfy! I also love that it can be worn as a top like I do or as a dress but the best part is that depending on the fabric used it can be casual or a little dressier.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did raise the neckline a bit because at the time I felt it was too low but when I make another one I think Ill try it with the neckline a little lower.
Would you sew it again? YES Would you recommend it to others? YES
