I was looking for a great summer dress. I found it!
I have a good sized collection of Kay Whitt patterns (Serendipity Studios). I have made a few skirts, but was always going to get to one of her dresses. Oh, I am so glad I did.
This is McCall's M5882, View D. I did a full bust adjustment to the front bodice piece as an alteration. You can't tell by the photos, but this is a great fitting dress. It has the potential to pull around the bodice, but I think I might have found the trick to great alterations for me. I have been bouncing around 3 sizes from the big pattern companies. I think I have settled on a size 14 with a full bust adjustment. It matches about a size 10 in ready to wear.
This dress is super fast to sew up and it can use all those cute quilter's cottons you have, so I have to give it a great recommendation.
