I could be a McCall's designer..

This post as been sitting as a "draft" for about a week now.  I've been too lazy to take pictures of my sketches, but I decided to take a break from the MOST STUPID ASSIGNMENT EVER to take pictures and finally get this post up.  I think Carolyn just posted about a dress she designed and made that looks like a new Butterick pattern.

Three weeks ago I had to design a dress and draw a technical flat and fashion figure to go with it.  Here's what a I came up with:

Sorry for the poor picture quality.

Last week, I was reading on Threads that McCall's already has a Early Summer pattern line out.  Check this one out:

Look similar??????? I like mine better. :)


  1. That's a very classy design. I like both. Yours is more of a special occasion dress while the McC pattern is strictly day wear in my opinion.

  2. Love your design. I can see it with a corsage attached at the waist.

  3. It is so great watching your progress through your classes, this is just fantastic! Great job!

  4. I like yours better too! Doesn't it feel like the pattern companies designers are scouring the blogs for new ideas? Or is it just me?!

  5. Me too - yours is much more elegant. The McCalls pattern could risk looking a bit sack-like ...
