Gonna Make a Dress

McCall's M5800
I haven't done any real sewing lately, and to pull myself out of this rut, I decided to actually use a commercial pattern, using McCall's M5800.

I picked up this pretty pattern from a local fabric store for only $1.99! I was so happy when I found this in the sale pattern section, among the hundreds of others. I had seen this one before, but not in the right size. This was 20th pattern I flipped to, and the right size! I felt like the universe was smiling down on me that day!

I love the simple and classic shape for this dress. I think I'll be able to make lots of pretty frocks with this pattern! I'm thinking floral dresses, little black dresses, anything really! I'm planning on making one in a pretty pink cotton, much like the dress on the pattern sleeve.

Typically, I'd try to churn out this dress in a day, but I'm planning on taking it slow, actually make a muslin and make adjustments, etc. Right now I'm tracing the pattern pieces to keep the tissue pieces intact if necessary.

I will update on the process!
