Today’s Pattern Story: McCalls 3698

by Erin on November 19, 2013

Floral: I will look off into the distance as I visualize my plans coming to fruition! Or as I anticipate the flowering of my plans, which is a more appropriate word, given my dress. Soon, the moon and all its habitants will be mine!

Polka-dot: I will gather my tulips while I may. Also, look at me! I’m Sandra Dee!

Green: Hey, I don’t think you took into account that there are five Thursdays this month, Doreen.

We talk a lot about how modern advertising gives women body image issues, but look at this pattern envelope! No one is actually going to have a waist the same diameter as their neck.

I love your pattern stories! I think it would be great if you compiled them into a book.

Love the look of this dress. Wondering if it a princess seam or not on the bodice.

Cal, I was wondering about that too! It looks like a stitched down pleat at the waist, that releases at the bust. Very cool!

You’d need a tiny waist to fit into that though….but the way the skirt flares out is cool.
