McCall's 6801: The Pizza Dress

I was contacted by another blogger and friend-of-a-friend to see if I was up for an interesting project; The Pizza Dress!
Rachel is a blogger in Virginia, pens the blog Pie Me To The Moon, and has spent the last year on a pizza "journey", eating and evaluating pies in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area, blogging about the experience and the people that participated. 
Fun!
The last 52 weeks were wrapped up into one big pizza party which happened to coincide with Rachel's birthday (smart girl!), and she wanted a special dress for the celebration.
Rachel had ordered a knit jersey fabric from Spoonflower, printed like a pepperoni pizza, and had chosen  McCall's 6801  for the dress design.

As I live in Michigan, and Rachel lives in Virgina, there would not be an opportunity for a fitting appointment, and the time constraints did not allow for mailing a fitting muslin back and forth. Luckily, her measurements fell right in line with the pattern measurements. Below is the finished dress on my dress form: no changes or alterations to the pattern.


I used a swimwear lining with approx 1 inch negative ease for this form-fitting knit jersey dress.


Below are some pictures that Rachel shared from her fun evening, and I think the smile on her face indicates that she was happy with her Pizza Dress!
Thanks, Rachel, for a fun project!
