McCall’s 7531 Round 2

I love this pattern, quick and easy. The choice of fabric makes the dress and in this case, I made this dress with this lovely printed knit from Angel’s Textiles in Los Angeles, CA for the second time. Yes, the same dress and the same fabric for Round 2, why?

 

 

Well the first time I made it I didn’t lay the fabric correctly. Fabric should be laid selvage to selvage when working with knits, this allows the fabric to stretch where it needs to be stretched. SO when I tried on the first dress, after I had completely finished it, it was so tight I couldn’t get it off and I had to cut it straight down the front to get it off.  CRAZY!!!  I saved that fabric and will use it to make a clutch or a head wrap, That’s how much I love this fabric.

 

 

I purchased 4 yards of this fabric so there was enough to make the dress again for Round 2. I checked and double checked to be sure I laid the fabric correctly this time. I tried it on, once I had it all assembled and it fit perfectly. From there I serged the inside to make  it as pretty as the outside.

 

 

I wore this dress today for a very special reason – my mom was being honored at the California State Capitol as Woman of the Year for her District. It was an amazing experience and very much deserved as she is one of the hardest working women I know. I am so proud of her.
