Getting to the end of my summer sewing for 2012 by finishing up a dress for my daughter Kristen: McCall's 6318, View C, which is now out of print. This is such a cute dress, with a bit of a retro feel in View C. The princess seams in the front bodice allow for easy alterations if necessary.
My daughter chose this fabric on our visit to Mood Fabrics in NYC on a trip we took in May, 2010. A lovely, tightly woven cotton, it sewed like a dream. I lined this dress with a poly batiste that I had in my stash.
I have to say that my pictures don't really show how cute this dress looked on Kristen. She's promised me a picture next time she wears it!
L.O.V.E. the pocket detail!
My daughter especially liked the way the bodice shoulder "straps" formed a Vee in the back.
Hard to see in the photos is the 6 inch walking slit at center back.
