McCall 7381 Hawaiian Print

You know I can never sew a pattern just once.  I have to make another version or style.  The McCall 7381 was no different.

Since I LOVED the black version so much I just had to try another one.

The only change I made was to follow the directions and line the bodice of the dress.  I used an off-white polyester lining.  The directions were great and the dress went together just as easy as my previous version.

I also did a narrow hem for the skirt.  Stitching 1/4" from the edge, turning up the the hem twice and stitching very slowly.  I think this will make a great summer dress.

$9.00 Dress!

Dear Hubby & I were off to the wedding.  I didn't get a photo of me wearing the gray jacket because it's only 1000 degrees here in Florida.  I did wear it at the Church and received many compliments on both the dress and the jacket.

  1. Those bright prints are so much fun for summer, and that wedding dress is absolutely beautiful, you look so curvy & feminine. You all look so good together too, pink is such a good color for weddings.

    1. Thank you. I can only get Dear Hubby to wear pink on a few occasions, he's usually the "blue" man. I'm so happy you stopped by my blog!

  2. Great dresses! Looking at the bright print makes we want to go on a cruise to the Caribbean.
