McCall's 7540 - Pattern Review

November 7, 2017


Hello LOVELY! I hope you are having a wonderful day! Today I'm posting about this brocade two piece dress I made for a sewing competition using this McCall's Pattern. This was a very easy sew and the directions were simple to follow. I made this dress for my model who is very tall and has legs for days. This pattern comes in sizes 6 - 22 and the cups come in sizes A - D, it's a MUST have in your pattern stash! 























I have gotten many questions about the applique that I attached to the bodice of this dress and I wanted to tell you how I did it so you can too. I ordered these assorted beads from Amazon in two different colors, pink and purple. When they arrived there were some that could be sewn on and other's that had to be glued. I grabbed a piece of tulle and placed it in a hoop and began gluing them down randomly. When I finished, this beautiful accessory came out. The pattern review is below and enjoy the photos! And remember to B Fab! B You! B Sharpe Too!

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing it? Yes it did


Were the instructions easy to follow? They were very easy to follow


What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked how you could easily adjust the skirt to make it how you wanted it


Fabric Used? Brocade


Pattern alterations or any design changes you made? Lengthen the skirt


Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to other? Yes I would sew this again. The only thing I would do differently would me to make it a little tighter in the bodice and through the hip. This is a definite must sew!
