Rockabilly Graphic Halter Dress McCall's 6350

When I purchased McCall's pattern 6350 (OOP) in 2011, I had all intentions to create view A with the side drapes. A few years later when I have now actually gotten around to making the pattern, I am so happy that I did not make that that skirt variation. This variation is classic retro:
The skirt is a full circle skirt and I feel that the last thing it needs is and additional overlay with pooling fabric at the hips. The construction was fun; the bodice is boned and lined and has angled pleating at the bust. I would call it advanced beginner. I did not actually change all that much on the pattern, of course I shortened both the bodice and skirt. I also elected to make my halter strap stationary opposed to adding button attachments. In addition I added cups to the bust for ease of wear. 

My cameraman is a 10-year old who just snaps away at any given moment.
Sew... honestly does it take anyone else years to get around to constructing patterns or is it just me?

  2. Oooh, I love the last moving photomontage, so cool! The dress is lovely, nice job. And, yes, I have a project from Fearless February, a sewalong that took place, obviously in February that I STILL have not completed. Getting close though!! :)

    1. Thanks! I hope you the best in the home stretch of your "February" project. Sometimes you just need a little break from a project and then sometimes that break becomes a holiday... I am right there with you on a few of my projects too.

  3. It takes me years to get round to some things, I also have a half-made blazer which I started years ago.
