McCall 7561 Floral Double Brushed Jersey Knit Dress

Just another McCall 7561 Dress for Church.  I raised the neckline on this version but still it's wide on me.  Maybe next time I'll get it perfect.

I wanted elbow length sleeves with a cuff and midi length.  Yes, this time I followed the directions and the dress went together so much easier!

I wanted a cardigan to wear at Church and thought something like this pleated shoulder version but it's a little too boxy/flowy. 

Cardigan?
This mauve pink brushed ITY knit matched perfect.  Then I had an idea of some type of waterfall cardigan.
Fabric choice
I took my TNT cardigan pattern and added a large rectangle onto the front pattern piece.  Easy sew and the cardigan feels sooooo good!  I hope it doesn't look too much like pajamas.

I'm off to sew something new!

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

  1. Very feminine. Doesn't look like pajamas at all.

  2. Lovely combo. Not like jammies at all -- but I bet they're as comfy as jammies! Double brushed jersey is sooo soft!

  3. I love this dress in the beautiful floral print, with the coordinating water fall cardi. Such a pretty outfit.
