Hopes of Spring and A Small Lesson

January 29, 2012

I’ve just completed vintage McCall’s  6797 (a copy of which can be found here), and it’s lovely.  The style is perfect for spring, with the short sleeves and swingy pleated skirt!


The style of the dress is super simple, so I jazzed it up a little with a cut-out and bias-trimmed insert.  There’s a small lesson on this technique (which I sort of made up as I went along) here.  It’s quite simple, but makes a big impact.  I also made a thin obi-style belt to accentuate the waist, but it nearly disappears into the background!


More pictures, and more information can be found on my blog, Ruby Satin!
