This is the second time I've made McCall's 5974--this time, in a size 12 instead of a 14. The 14 is very comfortable but pretty loose, so I thought I'd try it a size smaller. I'm still debating which size is better, and I think it will help to see some pix with the dress in action instead of on the form; those'll have to wait until DD comes for a visit.
I added 3 inches to the length of the skirt, and an inch in length to the bodice. The seams were all sewn and serged, and I used the coverstitch to hem the sleeves and skirt. I skipped the zipper--no need with such a stretchy knit. Instead of making a narrow hem at the neck, I bound the neck edges. The shoulders were stabilized with fusible interfacing, and the sleeves were sewn in flat.
Happy sewing! ~ Peggy
