The sewing mojo seems to be hanging around and so does the hot weather so I thought I would make one more summer dress.
This is McCalls 4769 which is sadly out of print now. I'd read quite a few reviews that talked about the difficult collar and facing, but I read through the instructions, followed each step and didn't have a problem.
The only changes I made were binding the armholes instead of using facing and using 7 buttons instead of 6. If I make it again next summer I'll make a couple of small fitting changes to the bodice. I really like this pattern, it didn't take log to make and it's really comfortable to wear.
The fabric is a quilting cotton by Rebecca Bischoff for Robert Kaufmann.
Sorry about the slightly blurry photos, had 2 minutes before school drop for the girls to take a few photos.
