Mccalls 6118




Pattern Description: Above, mid-knee length, one shouldered tunics A, B, C gathered into band; sleeveless tunic A has bow tie; tunics B, C have flared sleeves; tunic B has purchased jewels; tunic C has sash.

Pattern Sizing: I made size 18...had to take it in...a lot

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? so 4 pieces

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I am going crazy for all the one shoulder styles!!!

Fabric Used: Polyester print from Hancocks...I just love these colors in this print

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Well. originally I made the size 18 and then had to take in gobs of fabric from the sides..I means like at least 3-4 inches on each side...can we say tent...anywho, that took care of those issues...Needless to say there was no FBA needed on this one.
Instead of using a narrow hem. I did a rolled hem on the bottom and on the sleeve.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I will definately make this one again and soon...I am going to lengthen it a little and make it a knee length dress.

Conclusion: Pattern and fabric love!!!
