I’m so stubborn. After my struggle to like my first long version of McCalls 6987, I almost immediately searched for different fabric for a second attempt. Honestly, I really like the vibe of this pattern – there is a Lagenlook lady lurking inside me, and she keeps knocking. Kind of fun.
|I’ve sewn the short version 4 times – love it.|
This time I tried a quiet seafoam floral challis that I picked up from Fabric Mart’s pre-cut buyout. And I really like the balance of the color and the print with the lines of the dress.
|From VividLinen – aren’t those great pants!|
I was beginning to feel like a long tunic weeny. Maybe I should lift the back a little bit, more like this tunic…
Yes. I took off the ruffle and raised the back 3″ (it was loooong in the back). And now I really like it!
