McCalls 6959 -Woven Wrap Dress.

I love this dress!! It's easy to sew, comes together beautiful. So yes, I will brag on myself, I look soooo C-U-T-E in this.  I have coveted this pattern for awhile and every time I went to purchase it, it was never in the bin. Then I finally had it in my hands and it was meant to be. My favorite dress for the summer hands down.

M6959, Misses' Dresses and Belt

McCall's 6959 is one pattern that is a winner. You can never go wrong with a wrap dress and this one being sewn in a woven fabric is a must have. The sizes range from Misses sizes 6-22 and I stitched this up in size 18.  This was my first time working with bias tape so this was going to be fun. I have a great bias tape pressure foot that made testing it a dream. Don't you just love how the right foot makes sewing projects so easy?

Material Selection:
I used a cotton fabric from Hancock fabric that was on clearance. I brought this last year and it has been waiting to become something cute. The fabric print was perfect for this pattern. 

Cost of Project:
About $11.00. I purchased the binding tape on sale and the fabric was from my stash. Makes it a win, win all around, don't you agree?

Conclusion:
I love this dress and heck yes!, I will be making a few more of them for the fall and I have my V8379 for knits. This is one happy modiste over here.

   Knitting and sewing and loving everything about it.

    1. Thank you. I was kinda nervous about the bias tape and making sure it was continuous with the seams

    1. Bonnie I hope you are able to get your hands on it. I think it will be easy to adjust for you tool. I didn't do a FBA because you can make the adjustment with wrap. If you can tell by my picture this dress doesn't wrap like traditional wrap dress! You tie it accordingly on the inside and the out.

    1. I stumbled on this fabric looking for that gorgeous red and black you made your wrap dress in. So THANK YOU, for motivating me to go into Hancock Fabrics again. The store was tooo unorganized for my shopping pleasure so I used to avoid it like the plague, lol. Now it organized and I can really look for great fabric.

  9. Looks amazing! So true about having the right foot for the project.

    I'm doing a sew-along of this pattern on my blog, so thanks for the inspiration! I love your choice of black bias tape to contrast with the fabric too.
