McCalls 6741 Zipper Front Dress

When it comes to work clothes one of my favourite designer clothing label is the Australian brand, Cue. The inspiration for this version of dress was from a number of dresses that have become really popular with this brand, which you can see in store at the moment. So to create my version of the dress inspiration (shown below), I’ve used the sewing pattern McCalls 6741.

What did you like about this sewing pattern?

I decided use the sewing pattern McCalls 6741 to recreate this style of dress. As you can see below there are a number of different options, which are all included in the pattern. So it makes it pretty easy to mix and match and also colour-block if you wanted to.

I made this dress with cotton poplin lining to give it a more store bought feel and because the fabric was white I also didn’t want it being see-through. The fact this dress features a full skirt it makes it pretty cool do to twirls! So if you’re a dancer and want something a bit twirly, then this is your pattern!

Did you make any alterations to your pattern?

The only difference with my dress version to the original pattern is that I put the jacket zipper on the front, rather than the back to match the Cue inspired dress.

Would you recommend this pattern to others?

Overall, this pattern is gorgeous and I highly recommend. I love the option to add a different colour band to the bottom, which may be added to my to-do-list for sewing.
