Royal Blue Maxi Dress using M6744

So I just sewed up my last summer item last night. I won't be sewing any more for the warm weather. Which feels kind of good. I have made so many things and realized I only have a few more weeks to wear them... or a couple months. It's time to start working on fall/winter so I don't get caught with my pants down. 

Speaking of pants I bought two cuts of stretch corduroy and plan on making some pants soon... I'm nervous but excited at the same time.

My last pieces that I made were 2 dresses and a shirt. Here's one of those dresses. 

I saw a dress a friend had made using this pattern and really wanted to try it. Hers was lovely and she used a great print... which I plan on doing next summer. This time though I used this royal blue solid and love it. I don't have anything this color. It's so easy to just throw on a maxi dress and head out the door and feel more put together. Plus the hubs loved this look so it was a win all around.

Pattern Description: McCall's 6744 Pullover dresses have bodice variations, elasticized (seamed) waist, and narrow hem.  Mock wrap, very loose-fitting bodice with elasticized shoulders.

Pattern Sizing: I cut the medium. I think next time I'll cut a small in the top and a medium for the skirt.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done with it? Yes, but I used bodice C and skirt B.


Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they were really easy and the elastic in the sleeves came together quickly.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the ease of wearing a dress like this. And the pattern was so easy to follow and put together. Also, I was able to make this with only 2 yards of fabric... it was close and I had to play with my fabric like a puzzle but I got it.
