My First Post ...... McCalls 6988

My first post on this blog will be dedicated to my recently completed McCall's 6988 pattern. This is one beautifully designed pattern that I believe will flatter everybody type. Please see my complete review below. 

Fabric: Poly-spandex fabric and polyurethane faux leather from local NE Calgary fabric-land store.
Pattern Description: Semi-fitted dresses with self-lined yokes, princess seams, and back zipper. A, B with flounce and narrow hem. I made a sleeveless version B.
Pattern Sizing: Size E5, (14 - 22). I cut size 14 and morphed to 16 from waist down.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?:
Were the instructions easy to follow: The instructions are quite easy to follow.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: The following were made to original pattern
   1. Lengthened the bodice by 3.5",
   2. Omitted lined yoke, 
   3. Interfaced neck and sleeve, turned-in and sewed down 
   4. No lining attached.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Flounce..... I so much love
Conclusion: This style will flatter any figure and shape. It's a plus in my book, and it looks so much better on me than the dress- form.
Happy sewing you all !!!
