Aack! How did I miss it?

OK, my bad. I missed reviewing McCall’s summer sewing patterns. But since I live in the PNW and we only have 15 minutes of real summer weather I can be forgiven for that oversight. However, missing Diana Rupp’s first pattern for McCall’s in the summer collection is definitely a venal sin, if not a mortal one. Aaack! Please forgive me, Diana!

Look how adorable this sundress is.


This pattern is offered in the street length shown here, as well as a maxi length and a tunic top. And lucky for you the pattern is rated as easy, so even if you live in climate with a minimal  no summer you can still complete this cutie and enjoy it. So what are you waiting for? Just do it!

If you want more from Diana, be sure to check out her awesome book, S.E.W. Sew Everything Workshop. I reviewed this book last June, and gave it the 2 thumbs up for beginning students. If you already own S.E.W, I’d love to hear your thoughts about this sewing resource.

I hope we see more of you in the months to come, Diana, and happy sewing!
