Orange dress

I wanted so badly to try this McCall pattern!
Since I didn't have it, I made my own version,
and I'm very happy with it :)

I have combined three different fabric;

  • viscose jersey as main fabric
  • bright orange sport stretch underneath the lace
  • lace stretch fabric as diagonal borders and short sleeves. 


Jersey is nice sewing with, and it's comfy to wear.
Since the fabric is stretchy it's not necessary with a zipper.  
I had to neaten the lace to the sport stretch before sewing it together with the other pieces.
