Finally...the dress is done

It all started with a cute McCall's pattern #5672 that E helped me pick out from a selection of suggested patterns. Although it said "easy" I was told by my instructor Sue that it was a difficult dress to sew (especially since this was my first). I can't wait to sew the jacket and the pants outfit down the road. 

Here are all of my cut out pattern pieces.

Sorry I didn't take any pictures while sewing all the pieces together. I think I was just so involved with getting it done it didn't even cross my mind.

But, without further adieu here is the finished dress. Hope you like it.

I am currently taking an Alterations class and I am revamping a pair of boys cargo pants to be a pair of long shorts for our nephew G.

Have a wonderful evening.


  1. Congratulations, Alisha! You did a great job. That does look pretty advanced for a beginner. Button holes, sleeves and collar all in one project are not at all what I'd call easy, but you did it and you did great. Doesn't it feel good to look at it and know you made it?

  2. Hi Alisha~ I am really digging the dress. You did a great job dear, congrats. It is so cute! I love the color & the details.
    You have been quite the busy bee. Now you have to take a picture of you in the dress & post it on your blog too. TFS!
    By the way, I am currently hosting a giveaway on my blog in hopes that I reach 100 followers to inspire & be inspired by. Just leave a comment on the post dated APRIL 15th, post about it on your blog & that's it. When I reach 100 followers I will be drawing the winner. Hope you have a chance to stop over & spread the news.
    Take care & thanks for your blog support.
    Love peeking at your cool creations.
    Take care my fellow military spouse!

  3. Well done, the dress looks so neat. Now an alterations course is something I should do..... sounds like fun.
