McCall's 7505

My daughter asked me to make McCall's 7505 in a jewel-tone purple
for an upcoming wedding that she would be attending.
        I found a great Poly fabric at my local JoAnns Fabric and Crafts:
 very silky and drapey, perfect for this style.

Of course, those trumpet sleeves are the stars of the show, but
 had to be shortened by 2 inches. I took off 1 inch where
the flare meets the sleeve at the elbow, and one more inch
at the sleeve hem.:


                                             Although this pattern does not offer a lining option, it
                                          was easy enough to line this dress with anti-static lining, also
                                                 from my local JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts store.

                                     My daughter loved wearing this dress to her college friend's
                                                      wedding last weekend in Portland, OR.:

and I think she looks fabulous! 

This is a great style, very on-trend at the moment. I think it would look
great shortened to a tunic/top length for the Spring!



  1. The dress is right on style with the bell sleeves!! Your daughter looks lovely in it!

    1. My daughter loved those sleeves :-) Thanks for your kind words.
