McCall's Pattern M7971 - Junie Dress
McCall's pattern M7971.
This simple, elegant fitted dress pattern features a high neckline with a beautiful cut-out detail at the back. The bodice is lined, with shaping darts and a panelled skirt. Choose to go sleeveless, or add the neat cap sleeve or shoulder ruffle. There's also the option of mid-length sleeves with or without ruffles, with a choice of midi or maxi length skirts. Also - it has pockets!
A plus to this pattern is that separate pattern pieces are included for A, B, C and D cup sizes - which is a little extra help to get that bust fit spot on.
This pattern is a great choice for hacking into beautiful bridal or bridesmaid gowns. You could lengthen the skirt pieces into a stunning train, or choose a lace or tulle for the back pattern pieces for a stunning sheer back.
This pattern is best suited to intermediate level makers; you'll tackle inserting a concealed zipper, inserting in-seam pockets and fitting a bodice.
This pattern is available in sizes 6-14 or 14-22. Remember to always check your body measurements with the pattern to ensure the correct size.
Fabric suggestions: Woven fabrics with a good drape work well for this design; look for crepes, challis and satins.
You will also need: One 7″ (18 cm) invisible zipper, two hooks and eyes.
