Disco Skater Dress McCall's 6754

Although you can not see the sparkle in my sub par pics, this fabric shines like a diamond. This is because of the silver metallic weft fibers, the weave is also creates a stripe and when the pattern pieces went together a nifty chevron effect happened.
 Its a woven fabric with metallic and Lycra threads. It is not a knit as requested by the pattern; McCall's 6754 view D. However I was able to make it work by adding a center back zip.
The down side to this fabric is the wearing wrinkles. In the end it was a super easy pattern with all serged seams, great quick project. 


I also made the peplum top view C, in a sweater knit but I think it will be best advised to wait until winter to wear it.
