Do you want to give McCall's 8823 a try? Okay, just bare with me for a moment. Despite all the drama that I documented this weekend around sewing this dress,
It truly is a lovely pattern.
This is why I'm putting it up for the give-away. When I first made it in my younger days it came together without any issues. I only had to shorten the length. But this second time around when I went up more than a few sizes I forgot that I grew horizontally and shrunk an inch vertically. Those were my issues, not the pattern's issues. This is a great dress pattern.
The description from the pattern envelope:
Misses' Unlined Dress, Lined Tunic and Lined Pants: Pullover sleeveless slim fitting dress has mock back wrap, fitted tunic with straps has princess seams, front darts, side slits and back zipper, pants with front and back darts have waistband with side zipper closure and side slits.
I have three different pattern sizes to choose from, size 6, 14 or 16. The size 16 dress pattern is cut. The other garment pattern pieces are not.
So here is the deal. I will give away one pattern, your choice in size just promise not to sell it, give it a good home, use it, share it and enjoy it. Oh, and leave a comment below stating what size you would like and I will draw for the pattern on Thursday, July 10th. I will ship internationally.
