A few days ago I saw a post about a Shirt Dress Sew-Along being hosted by McCall Pattern Company. I have a “few” shirt dress patterns in my stash and thought it would be fun to participate and see all the different designs everyone would come up with.
Often times I’m inspired by my fabrication so I hunted through my stash to see if there was something that appealed to me. Nothing…..So what’s a girl to do? I guess I needed to go shopping!! Luckily for me I found a print that completely “Strikes My Fancy”……AND it’s perfect for this sew-along too! I’m a bit of a “blue gal” so I was drawn to this print as soon as I saw it. Reminds me of all the shades of blue in the ocean!! It’s a cotton blend with a soft hand. A great choice for our hot Florida Summer’s.
Even though I have several shirt dress patterns in my stash, there was a McCall pattern sale on at Joann Fabrics last night, so I selected McCall’s Pattern # M7387. A simple shirt with extended length for the easiest shirt dress ever. I plan to make view E with sleeve A.
If you’re interested in joining this sew-along and all the fun, check out McCall Pattern Companies announcement post here. It’s still early enough to pick a pattern and some fabulous fabric and jump on board. Looking for a little inspiration?
