McCall's steps it up

I'm not a big McCall's fan, but I do remember being vaguely interested in this dress pattern.

McCall's 5658

Then while browsing I stumbled upon this number. Look familiar? I love it when knockoffs just fall into my lap. Especially when they are Diane Von Furstenberg.

I couldn't see past the bling on the McCalls envelope, but now I see the pattern's potential. Thanks for sharing :)



Call me boring, but I still am not on board with the one shoulder look. But, I will give credit to McCalls for being on their game.

I already had this pattern on my "to-sew" list. I've been seeing the one shoulder dresses everywhere. I was so glad to see a pattern for a tailored one, especially with a waist seam.

I'm not a one-shoulder-wearer either, but I'm impressed with McCall's offerings lately. I've always ignored them but I've seen some nice pictures of their patterns made up lately.



Nice. If you check out the Gap website they have their own version of the cut out dress by designers Three AsFour
