I'm going to be making a lot of yellow items in the near future. I finished McCalls 6878 last night. It's a brand new pattern and I couldn't find any reviews of it anywhere. Here is the picture that the company posted on the front of the package.
Turns out that I was way off on one and spot on on the other. I made the size 4 since that works so well on McCalls 6875. It was not too short. It is longer than the long dresses and I actually put in a 4 inch hem. I think it might be a good maxi for my 6-year-old if I were to just serge the bottom. It is, however, falling off of the shoulders much more than this picture shows. I suspect that they tacked the straps to make them curve less in the model and that they also put a much smaller sized dress on this model than she normally wears (possibly a size 2 on this size 5 child).
I couldn't tell when I finished it last night, but it looked very nice on the table.
It is huge. After trying it on Darth Monkey, I tried to take it off and she wouldn't let me because 'she is going to wear her yellow princess dress!' She also wouldn't model it for me, but here are the pics I did get.
I may make this again, but if I do, I will draft straight shoulders and likely change the construction of the sleeves quite a bit.
