Made by a Fabricista: McCalls 7833

I’m late to the M7833 party, but better late than never. I absolutely love it in this leopard print techno knit from Fabric Mart. Read about the modifications I made to the statement dress over on Fabric Mart’s Fabricista Blog.


Pattern: McCalls 7833

Pattern Description:Pullover dresses have side gathers with either elastic or ribbon and sleeve variations. A, B, C: Shaped hemline. D: Side slit.

Sizing: 6-14, 14-22 I sewed an 18

Fabric Used: Leopard print techno knit from Fabric Mart.

Does it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very

Likes:  Side ruching, asymmetrical hem, simple construction

Dislikes: neck and armhole facings, lack of printed finished measurements

Pattern alterations or any design changes made: I eliminated the facings, opting for coverstitching and lowered the front neckline.

Would I sew it again? Yes, I think I need another one in red or black.

Would I recommend it to others? Definitely, good beginners project.

Conclusion: Easy statement dress
