|McCall's 6506 Front|
|McCall's 6506 Back|
Fabric: Cotton Poplin from Gorgeous Fabrics (I used same print before: Vogue 1177 Poppy Blouse)
Pattern: McCall's 6506 - Out of Print (Limited sizes are still available at McCall's website as of 03/12/2014)
- Collar: Since I thought that collar looked too big on the pattern envelope, I made it smaller.
- Pockets: I wanted to make pockets and actually cut them out, but the instruction for attaching them confused me so much that I decided to omit them. I thought that either the illustration was wrong or cutting line and fold line on pattern were mixed up. Of course I could be wrong...
The dress has a retro vibe to it. I like how pleats turned out.
I tried Hong Kong finish for the first time. I am loving the result!
By the way, this dress sold at Nordstrom looks identical to McCall's 6506.
