Happy Friday! Here is another one of my fall DIY dresses. I whipped up another quick version of TNT McCalls M6886, also known as the easiest knit pattern in the sewing community.
I made view C, which I have made a few times before. I elongated the hem by a few inches.
Here is the view from the back. I did add a CB seam (the pattern does not call for it), but it always helps to get a better fit. Instead of cutting the back “Cut 1 on fold”, I cut 2, adding a CB Seam allowance.
I made this dress fitted but not super fitted. I paired it with a collarless cape with arm slits for colder days.
I so love the style lines on this cape.
Read below for more details on this DIY:
PATTERN: I used TNT McCalls M6886, view C and added a few inches to the hem.
Super easy. I used this easy technique to attach the sleeves. There are only 3 pattern pieces on this dress: Front, sleeve, back. I did all the hemming with a cover stitch.
FABRIC: Double knit I purchased on Etsy many moons ago.
I hope you enjoyed reading this and I hope this inspires you to sew and make something for yourself. See you next time and until then. Happy Sewing
