The stepfrock


Here is another version of this frock, and it's also a remake of the frock made for S in Melbourne in June, and it's named for her. Still no photo of that frock, but this is a pretty good repeat.
I did a blind hem on this frock, first time ever! It looked great! Then I decided I needed it to be a little bit shorter, so I just did the usual machine hem because, well, I got lazy.

Good thing I'm not a perfectionist. I still love this frock.

Ooh err, that one turned out even better! Is that the doubleknit? It's supppeeerrrrrb.

Gotta pick your brain about the blindhem - I think I have it on my machine but I have never used it...

Love the dress. What was the number of the Mccalls pattern for this inspiration and the LBD back in Jan.?
Thanks!

Maggie,
The pattern is McCalls 8750; it pops up on ebay and vintage pattern sites every now and then.
