Easy High Low Dress with a Sash

Hello everyone,

Back in the Fall of 2012.  I was going to an event an I really wanted to make the outfit I was going to wear.  So one day while in Hancock I found a pattern, that I thought would be perfect.  It is McCall’sFashion Star”  Pattern MP228/ M6553 to purchase click here.



So now that I had the pattern, I needed to find the fabric.  The pattern suggest a double knit…..along with some other options.  I wanted a knit in Cobalt Blue. Since, I couldn’t find what I wanted I settled for a nice Navy Blue Ponte Roma Knit.



Pattern Review

Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were pretty easy to follow….an I’m pattern challenged…lol.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  The next time I work with this pattern, I would not use interfacing on the yoke back.  I would like less stiffness/structure in this area.

Pattern Description: Loose-fit, pullover dress with princess seams, side opening for self belt, self-lined yoke back  back pleats/ neck slit with button/thread loop closing, and shaped hemline.

Does the dress look like what is pictured on the pattern? Yes it absolutely does

Fabric Used:  Ponte Roma Knit (which is great because depending on how you accessories/style it, you can dress it up or down.  This fabric was really easy to work with and sews like a dream.

Is the pattern true to size: Yes 

I highly reccommend this pattern because it’s easy to construct, not alot of pattern pieces, looks fabulous and the pattern offers other options like a high low top, color blocking and lenthening the hemline for a totally different look than the high low.

Feel free to check out one my favorite blogger’s MimiGStyle. She did a great overview on this pattern in RED.

Happy Sewing!!

Until Next Time,

Sewloveable ☺
