Once upon a time...

One upon a time, I had a pattern just like this one in my sewing stash. I made the dress and it quickly became one of my favourites. I made it in a light grey colour and it travelled with me all the way to Portugal. I made Version A, the longer length, and loved the centred bust darts and empire waist. It was a comfortable dress that made me feel special. Don't you love dresses that can do that? Like many of my favourite dresses, I outgrew it. ~sigh~  

But wait, this story has a happy ending. Or will soon have a happy ending. I stumbled across it last week and in a moment of weak nostalgia, I ordered it. How could I resist, it was in my size and listed at a very good price. ~happy sigh~


  1. It's a lovely pattern! Will you be making it in grey again or will you be using a different color? I love the grey version on the envelope - very classic!

    1. I'm not sure what fabric I'm going to make it in. I do have a lightweight wool in a tiny grey check pattern. Maybe...

  2. Nice! I'm glad you found it again. I hope you can make it up and that it'll be as much a favourite as it was originally! :)

  3. Thats a great pattern- I love the dress...


McCall's 7630: Pullover Top

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
