McCall's 6118

I had this pattern since last summer. I have been seeing a lot of the off the shoulders dresses and shirts and I am loving them. So I went to my pattern stash and pulled this out.









Pattern: McCall's 6118 I made view A minus the bow tie.
Misses tunics and sash:Above the mid-knee length one shoulder tunics A B C gathered into band sleeveless tunic A has bow tie, tunic B C have flared sleeveless, tunic B has purchased jewels, tunic C has sash, purchased leggings.

Fabric: mystery fabric from Walmart 1.50 a yard.

Conclusion: As you can see I decided to wear as a dress. See what had happen was when I put the shirt on my dress form I said HMMMMM!LOL! Well I thought it was cute as a dress. And I know myself I rather grab a one piece outfit to wear than a two piece for the summer. But I can still wear it with pants also.
I think this is something I would make again.



Well that's it for me happy and bless crafting! :)

I agree with Candice...you look fabulous! In fact, I wouldn't necessarily purchase the pattern based on the views from the envelope, but I would purchase it based on your look. Kudos to you!!! Marvita
