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!
