Perfect Gown Using McCall Pattern 8037


I used McCalls 8037 and I did View C with the tie from view A/B. This pattern is very easy to follow and intermediate friendly in my opinion. However, it will require some patience when you get to the hem if you choose to do this version of this dress. I love to do a quick IG search to see all the renditions of a pattern by others. I love how this dress drapes on the body and I am so glad I decided to make it in velvet. I would definitely make this pattern again! I actually recently got the last of the green velvet from Melanated Fabric but there are so many other amazing colors like this gold that I want to grab next. The matching mask was made using the YouTube tutorial and printable pattern by Mimi G found here.


I didn’t really need to modify this dress much at all. The one thing I did do was add length to the sleeves. I also made a shorter tie for the front of the dress just in case I wanted to tie it for the deep V effect without the tie hanging down.
