New Sewing Project – McCall’s Dressmaking Pattern M6163

You know how it is when you find the perfect dress, it fits well, you love the fabric and the design. My favourite dress at the moment came from Joules – it was a bit of a treat when I bought it because it cost over £80!

So, as I love it so much I have looked around for a similar pattern to make a similar version of my dress myself. 

The nearest in style I could get was this McCall’s pattern. It’s not exactly the same but that is not essential. What I really like about this pattern is it has the same cross-over front and should fit well at the waist. 


I am going to have a go at version A with the 3/4 length sleeves – all I need to do now is find the fabric!


I am lucky enough to have a fantastic fabric shop right on my doorstep but unfortunately they do not sell any form of jersey or stretch dress fabrics that this style needs so I am going to have to hit the internet and get samples or just plunge in and buy something without seeing it.

Hopefully, I’ll find something I like soon as I am really looking forward to getting started on this one!
