McCall's 6074 Knit Pajama Dress M6074

This McCall's 6074 pattern caught my eye last month on Etsy.  It only had three pieces and looked fast to sew up.  I used a 18 top and graded out to a 22 at the hips.  The fit is great, I could have used a straight 18 and it would have been fine.

I did use my faithful knit sleeve pattern so I didn't have to finish the armhole edge.  I made a dress way back and really liked the sleeve & armhole fit so I copied it onto my brown kraft paper and I just use the patterns in place on any knit pattern I want to have that sleeve.  Easy and I know it will fit!

The pattern directions have you turn under the seam allowances on the neck edge and stitch, I made a neck band so that it looked a little more like a knit shirt.  I surged the sleeve hem and the bottom hem and left them un-turned.  Since this is only a pair of pajamas to sleep in it really didn't matter. 

The dress if very comfy and I will make another one soon.

I am looking to make a nautical theme dress in red and white stripe with a rope waist tie. 

Until next time................
