Recently I made a new dress, and kept forgetting to have Stephen take pictures of it. I wore it on Sunday and Stephen was kind enough to take a couple of shots of it.
The pattern is McCALLS M4398 – the same pattern I used for this dress. It seems that it’s out of print now, but I absolutely love it. I’ve sewn two dresses from the pattern so far, and bought more fabric yesterday for another. It is by far the most comfortable dress I own. There were a few alterations – lengthening the bodice and hem, raising the neckline a bit, and changing the shoulder seam angle to fit better. It sounds like a lot, but for the most part they really were simple alterations. It was the first time I tried changing the bodice or shoulders, and it turned out really well.
What I do like is this sweet picture of Samuel and I. He wanted so badly to be in the pictures, and this one turned out great.
