Sewing project : Mccall M5425

Pattern Description: 

Pullover dress has front and back casings; dress A has contrasting tie that extends from left front and left back opening edges of casing, canter back slit at upper edge; dresses B, C have shoulder straps extending from casing, upper and lower center back slits; dress B has contrasting shoulder strap and belt.
Pattern Sizing:

Size 6 - 20. I chose size 6.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Yes, it does!
Were the instructions easy to follow?

Very easy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

The only thing I do not like with this pattern is that the back is shapeless! No darts!
Fabric Used:

Japanese made floral polyester fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I did not sew the slit and skipped the tie belt.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?


This is a super easy pattern for anyone who wants to start sewing. However, it is a shapeless pattern. Other then that I still think this pattern can be workable with a fancier fabric!
