McCalls 7444: winter dress

Ah! I finished the McCalls 7444 dress right in time for the holidays. I combined the two versions adding the longer sleeve with a full skirt to make the dress easier to wear during the winter. The fabric is a soft wool/polyester blend and the dress is so comfortable!

Merry Christmas everyone!

To Do List

I'm currently working on this dress:

This pattern was suppose to go to my Etsy shop but I fell in love with it and decided to keep it for myself. I'm making it in a black/dark gray tiny hounds tooth fabric and invested in a eyelet setter so the dress will have a wonderful little belt! I'm hoping to finish the dress tonight and will post pictures as soon as it's done. Have a great weekend!
