Knit Dress (M5974)

It's easy to see why this was a Best Pattern of 2010 at PR. The pattern goes together very easily and is quite flattering. I'll be making more work dresses from this pattern. I finished this dress months ago (I'm thinking last fall!) but never got around to taking pictures although I have worn it many times.

My coworker and I had some fun on the fire escape today!


Pattern: McCalls 5974 (out of print)
Fabric: ITY from Gorgeous Fabrics.
Fitting Adjustments:
Cut size 10 at bodice; took in additional 1/2" on each side.
Graded to 12-14 at hips but then took 3/4" off each side.
Cut 2" out of skirt as some of the reviews indicated the skirt was very full.
2" hem; just above knee.

I can't recommend this pattern enough.
