Spring Youth Dance Dress

A couple weeks ago there was a Spring Formal Youth Dance at church.  Usually L. justs wears a skirt and a tee for Church or at the dances.  We (or maybe it was just me) thought it would be nice if she stepped it up a notch for this dance.  I am happy that she is actully happy to wear a dress and not just a skirt.

She helped pick out the fabric and the pattern.

McCall's 6027


She received quite a few compliments on her new dress--she even wore it the next day to Church. 

  • Lengthened waist by 2"
  • Added 5" more to length
  • Adjusted sleeves to be cap--otherwise this pattern shows lots of armpit.
  • Made own bias tape to edge both hem and sleeve hem
  • Needed to raise neckline for L.'s comfort level--added 1  1/2" contrasting band
