1940 McCall Sundress

September 16, 2010

I’ve just finished my 1940 McCall sundress from this pattern:

Here’s some photos of me in the dress at a historical garden in Scotland.  I really like the pleat in the front of the dress:

I love the stripes on this dress–they are pink and cream.  I’ve never sewn anything with stripes before but I really like it because it is very easy to match up!

I also really like the back of the dress. 

Overall, I really like it!  There was a lot of hand sewing/hemming which took awhile but other than that it was pretty straight forward to put together.  More pictures on my blog.

  1. Love the dress…made to perfection! Really like everything you post…looking forward to your next project. I've got to start another soon!!
