DIY:Maxi with elasticized shoulders + waist.

McCalls 6744 

 Pattern Description:
I used version c.Which was the mock wrap dress with elasticized waist and shoulder seams.

                                                                    Pattern Sizing:
                                                                         XS-XXL

                         What did you particularly like of dislike about this pattern?
                     I loved the look of the elasticized waist and shoulder area. It added great detail to the dress.

 Fabric used?
An ITY knit from lowpricefabric.com you can get a similar version here. ITY-KNIT
It is not the same color but the same pattern. This material was super easy to work with. I also used a jersey needle. Worked superb.

Pattern alterations or any changes you decided to make?
                                                                              The bust was way too big. I didn't realize how big it was until I had the dress pretty much completed. Instead of taking the dress a loose and cutting off the access fabric from the waist portion.I cut off the access fabric by the shoulder seams. It  did tighten up the dress but it through the shoulder sleeves off really badly.I took off about 6 inches to get the fit.


 Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Not this version. A-because I do not think it was flattering on me. I am unsure if it was the fabric choice or the style. B. Because the split to me is very off putting. This is definitely a dress that will require some shorts too be worn under it. In the pictures I am wearing pants underneath, just in case the wind decided to blow.
