McCall’s 6700 + Pattern Review


Hello All! I know it’s been awhile but I’m back! I haven’t been able to sew as much as I would like over the past few weeks because of procrastination! Just being honest! There are so many pieces that I want to sew but I have to utilize the time management strategies that I mentioned in my Time Management post.

This dress is McCall’s 6700, from the Fashion Star collection. I made it in a different color for a friend a while ago but I’m just getting around to making one for myself.

I was on my way out of town one weekend and I decided to stop by Fine Fabrics for a quick fabric fix, I saw this fabric and fell in love!  However, I did not realize how thin this fabric was until I began cutting out the pattern but I made it work! Check out the pattern review and pictures below. See you later!

Pattern Description: Misses’ Dress and Belt

Fabric used: ITY Knit

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? Yes

What size did you cut? 12

Level of difficulty: Easy (Next time I will use a more stable knit, not heavy but stable)

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like how the dress has a very elegant look to it. I did not like the gathers and ties for the shoulder seams.

Pattern alterations or design changes: Instead of doing the gathers and ties for the shoulder seams, I did box pleats.

Would you sew it again? Yes

Would you recommend it for others? Yes

  1. I love it! The back is gorgeous…love the drop of it.

  2. This is fabulous! Well done.

  3. I looove the back. I am not a huge fan of gathering too, so I’m sure those pleats worked better for you. Was the ITY too slinky for this style?
