McCall's 6070 again!

Hey lovely Divas! I am going to keep this post simple and sweet. I first reviewed this pattern sometime last year. I no longer have the first dress, because it was terrible and terribly made, but we all have to start somewhere. I have to thank you all for encouraging me then, to keep sewing.. Because looking at the midriff from last year, and Baaaaaby, it was all kinds of wrong.. But you Divas encouraged me nonetheless, so to that, I say thank you!

 My review from last year still holds true, this pattern is really, really easy.. I made a straight 14, and I absolutely loved the elastic in the sleeves, to give that gathered look. I also loved the back, and that it wasn't too low, that I could still wear a regular bra with this dress. I only made one alteration if that's what you want to call it, and that was not to add the elastic in the waist area. As I didn't find it necessary... This is my last summer dress for the season, and I know I said that for V1179 but I really wanted a new dress for friendship festival today on base...And that's just where we say thank you to our host country....


 I tried to get the boys to put up their
 peace signs as the Japanese do when posing for pics,
but um, no such luck with my two lol!

So, here are a few pictures from today at friendship festival on base! The dress wore very well, and I was comfortable all day, so I probably will make this next summer. As this only took about a day or two to make.
The American food vendors, giving our host country a taste
of our American cuisine..
               Divas, as always be blessed and nothin' less and continue to be fearlessly fierce!
