Pattern: McCalls 6741
In a previous post I said that I don’t often buy designers clothing. However, come to think of it that’s probably not 100% accurate and that’s because I LOVE Cue. So the inspiration for my McCalls 6741 dress was basically from the latest trend featuring a number of these dresses with a fitted bodice and flare skirt, as shown below.

So when I found the McCalls 6741 pattern I knew I had to recreate it to start making my own little Cue dresses based on this trend. As you can see below there are a number of different options, all as awesome as each other. The only difference with my dress is that I put the jacket zipper on the front, rather than the back.
This dress is fully lined to give it a more store bought feel and because it’s white. I didn’t want to have to be worried about any undie lines.
Plus, the fact that this dress features a full skirt, makes it pretty cool do to twirls! So if you’re a dancer and want something a bit twirly, then this is your pattern!
See, I took some photos to prove it!
Overall, this pattern is gorgeous and I highly recommend. I love the option to add a different colour band to the bottom, which may be added to my to-do-list for sewing.
I hope you enjoyed! Happy Sewing!
