I was really in love with McCall's 6959 when it came out a couple of months ago for the Spring/ Summer line of patterns. It might have been the way the model was smiling in the picture, but I just knew I had to have that dress. There are a pretty good bit of wrap dresses, shirts, skirts, just anything you can think to wrap out there, but that didn't matter to me. I thought the bias around the dress was just beautiful, so guess who started the 6959 project? That's right, Me.
My luck runneth over when I was able to find the perfect piece of Linen to go with my dream wrap dress. I had seen this fabric several times in Hancock Fabrics, but it was just not saying anything to me at the time. I admired its beauty as it glistened under the ambiance of the florescent lights. My eyes would just tear up and then my mind would say,,"Keep it moving!" I really wanted that fabric. So one day while I was out window shopping (LOL) I decided that a yard maybe even 2 wouldn't hurt anything. Then pow! McCall's breaks out with this pattern.
Here are my findings at the fabric store and what I did with both the pattern and the fabric.
Yay! I got both of them in 1 shot. This fabric is a gorgeous gold foil weave linen print that looks kind of strange up close, but it definitely had me thinking for weeks after I had seen it. With pattern in hand and fabric to boot.
