Dots and Stripes McCall’s 7531

Happy Sunday 

So I picked up this fabric a few months ago at Joann’s Fabric. I was in love because of the dots. Then I got to the cutting carton and realized the dots were on the wrong side of the fabric and only formed by the stripes on the other side.
But I didn’t care still bought it. I’ve had this McCall’s pattern for a while but doing to it needing a four way stretch fabric, I had to wait. Most my knit fabric are 2 way. This fabric is awesome 4 way stretch.
The pattern goes to well, I made XL. I decided to add a neckband instead of turning under.  I made View B with the slit from D tho. It’s a good simple pattern. 
My intentions was to make this dress with McCalls 7722 View D, but the fabric wasn’t the right one for this fabric, although this fabric has a lot of stretch it is still structured and the sleeve ended up looking real 80’s balloon sleeve, and that’s not what I wanted. 
I will try the sleeve again in a light weight fabric with drape. However the sleeve was so big, I was able to cut out the original McCall’s 7531 and it was good to go.
Well that’s it for today….
Until next time Sew on!
