McCall 3638 is finished!!

YAY! I finished up McCall 3638 just in time to catch what was left of the daylight for some photos!


I made view A which is the collarless version:

Here's a close-up of the bodice:



You can see our town in the background of this photo:

I had originally wanted to have tartan covered buttons, but alas, the fabric was too thick to make my own buttons with--so I made the tartan belt instead (which matches the jacket, shoes and purse)!

 With a jacket the dress becomes a suit frock!


Oh...I love it!  It's such a great basic color....what do you think?

  3. It's wonderful!! - stand alone or with the sweet jacket. I'd love trying a blouse out of the top's design but I've done a web search for the pattern with no luck. It looks like McCalls has used this number - 3836 - a few times. DARN.
    Nice job!!

  23. Beautiful dress - this pattern is classic in the true sense. The design still looks very contemporary.

  24. Really beautiful. I would have no idea that a jersey, a modern fabric, would work with a 1940s dress pattern. Gorgeous.

  25. That dress is AWESOME. As is the backdrop. I know what you mean about daylight hours. It makes taking photos of FOs really difficult when you have to squeeze it around a day job.

  27. Great dress! It is such a pretty basic colour and looks wonderful against the backdrop of your town. Fantastic shoes, too!
