Pattern Review McCalls 6559

I love a great maxi dress. I wear them year round. I can wear this on now with a jean jacket, cardigan or leather jacket.

Pattern Description: 
MISSES'UNLINED JACKETS AND DRESSES: Close-fitting, unlined jacket in 2 lengths has front extending into single-layer tie ends(wrong side shows). Very close-fitting, pullover dresses. E and F: front seam detail, bias upper/middle fronts, and lower front/back (cut on crosswise grain of fabric. All have narrow hems.

Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 22, view E

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It was quick and simple. I love maxi dresses

Fabric Used: Jersey Knit from Hancocks

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I made the bottom flare out a little more. I used bias tape that I made for the neckline and armholes instead of doing a narrow hem as the pattern suggested.

Would you sew it again? Absolutely!

 Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I sewed it on my serger, but can easily be sewn on a regular sewing machine with a zigzag or stretch stitch. 

Conclusion: This was a super easy and cute maxi dress pattern that is big girl friendly. This would be easy to grade up for larger sizes.
