TA DA!!!!! McCall’s M4769 Is DONE!!!


And here I am wearing the dress. Excuse the lack of face… I was having a bad face day. 😉Image

Here’s a close up of the buttons (which I <3).


SHEW!! It feels SOOOOOOOOOOOO good to have that done! 🙂 As you can tell I made some adjustments from the original pattern…. No collar or lapel and I added the bias tape. It made the dress a tad bit too roomy in the neck but I think I can fix that.

I think the adjustments make it look even MORE vintage than the original. It’s definitely giving me a 50’s feel

Here’s a pic of the original pattern.


I know I said I was going to make this

Easy (HA! Not THAT easy) McCall’s M6197


out of this


But I feel the need to go with simple for a bit. All the sick kids and sick Hubby…. Now I am starting to get a sore throat! YILES!!! So I will be keeping it simple for the next few days. And I REALLLLY need to get my VBS lessons down. I volunteered to teach the 4/5’s this year… I’m a little afraid…. The enthusiasm I received when I said I would take that age group fell only slightly short of a standing ovation… Yeah.. A little afraid… I think they know something I don’t… LOL

So….I will be making this instead.


I’ll be making the blue dress only in sparkly pink knit!! 🙂 LOVE PINK!! It’s Easy (YAY!!!) McCall’s M6074.

And for the kiddos I will go with pillowcase dresses for c1 and a pair of pillowcase shorts for c2 using these….




I LOVE the details of that one. Here’s a close up! 😉


And for c2’s shorts…


What have YOU been up to??? Share in the comments section so I can check it out!!!
