McCall’s M7407 Dress with Stylish Fabric

The perfect flared dress! McCall’s pattern M7407 features a center front and back seam, so the skirt ends up being super full and fun. I compared it with the Ebony Dress when making my pattern decision, but I wanted more flare and swing.

Pattern M7407 calls for 3 3/4 yards of fabric for View B. Plus I added the sleeves from View A. That’s a lot of fabric!! I knew going into this project that I wanted the fabric to be flouncy and have amazing drape so the dress would still have a flattering silhouette for me.

Queue this amazing fabric from Stylish fabrics that I found in my search. First off, it’s yarn dyed! Am I the only one that is drawn to yarn dyed fabrics? They are perfect for projects with flounce or flutters where both sides of the fabric will peak at some point. I choose this micro stripe viscose jersey  and I’m so happy with it. It’s buttery soft and the drape is amazing.  And it’s only $5.90 right now!

One recommendation for this pattern is to size down if your fabric has a high stretch content. With the heavy skirt, the top tends to drag down. Next time I’ll size down. I measured a 14, but next time I’ll make a 10 or 12.

The spin on this dress is amazing and too fun! I love wearing tights with it for the winter. This will be my perfect fall/winter dress.
