McCall’s 7565 Pattern Review | Fancy Machine Stitches

Finally, the “Jungle Book Dress” for my Disney Cruise has been finished! I have mixed feelings about it and have received some wonderful feedback from viewers! (See the comment section of the video page.) I definitely feel I look better in a more traditional shirt dress silhouette but this is meant to be fun and different! I’m not sure I dislike it enough to tackle the alterations. Time will tell!

I also showed my first attempt at using one of the fancy stitches on my machine! I loved the effect with some multicolored thread. Here’s sneak peak of the skirt:

  1. Cute dress, Margaret! I agree, take in the sleeve at the top. Good job! Now that I’m retired, I have done some mending on the sewing machine and preparing to make some valances, with cording along the bottom. Need to practice sewing the cording before I start on the good stuff!
