This is the perfect pick-me-up dress! First off, thank you for all your sweet comments last week! I am definitely feeling much better (and like I can tackle anything)! This week I decided to pick the easiest looking pattern that I have (I tend to like really complicated patterns :) And I'm so glad I picked McCall 5384 to make!
I really love the pockets on this dress and the shoulder yoke details. It was fairly straight forward to make–though I did stumble a bit on the pocket instructions but eventually figured it out (my problem was that I hadn't clipped the corners to the edge of the seam allowance allowing them to be turned inside without bunching up the outside).
I love how streamlined the back looks:
The bodice darts line up with the back seams. I decided to go sans belt with this for the photos because I think it looks great without the belt but I bet it would look really cute with a matching belt too!
What is your perfect summer/winter dress?
