Update on McCall 3638

I'm almost done with McCall 3638!!  I just need to go to the store and get some more buttons, hem the skirt, attach the last sleeve and make the belt!

Here's another drawing of the pattern (the yellow dress):

I think it looks fabulous in the pastel yellow color.  Maybe I will sew this up again in the spring in a nice color.  At the moment I am sewing more of a staple dress in a dark grey color.  I am really liking the long sleeves on the dress.

I am also sewing up a belt in the blue 'Ness' tartan:

You may recall this fabric came from a 'bucket' hat that I bought (specifically for the fabric!).  I've taken the fabric apart and have pieced together several segments for the belt.  Tartan is fabulous because it's really easy to piece together and you don't really see the stitching.  It will look great with the dress!  I just need to make it a bit narrower and back it with the grey fabric... I hope to finish the dress and to take some pictures before the weekend!


  1. Ooh can't wait to see it, Debi!

  2. Oh WOW. That dress is dreamy! I can't wait to see your version!
    I see you're a McCall fiend like me! Lol!!

  3. It's looking great!

  4. How exciting! Can't wait to see. Then send me the pattern. :)

  5. What a great dress with adorable yoke detail. I've got a similar design only it's a blouse that is dying to be made in multi-directional stripes!

  6. cannot wait to see your beautiful dress. I adore the belt tartan you are going to be pairing it with!


I read each and every comment--thank you so much!
