This dress is made from McCall's 6139 from 1961. I love the kimono sleeves and the the bound pocket openings. The position of the pockets is great too, it feels like a coat when I put my hands in them. I used a cotton spandex fabric for this dress, I chose this fabric solely on colour, this apple green is yummy. I think the stretch factor is good for the bodice and bad for the the pockets, which gape a little. Also, the fabric is not so drapey, which I didn't think would mater so much for this 4 gore dress, however the photos tell me differently as the skirt kinda juts out rather than hugs my shape, you know what I mean?
I did get a stack of compliments today, which is noice. I think I would like to make this dress again in a straight cotton, no stretch factor.
This is day two of the SSS challenge.
