I have had plans to make Axelgirl a dress from McCalls 6518 for a while. pattern She picked out an aqua blue linen/rayon blend. The edges of the ruffles are going to be roll hemmed on the serger in bright pink, and the ribbon will be bright pink.
I did the muslins a few weeks ago. She measures almost a perfect size 14. So I started there. It was huge on her. Next I made a size 12, and it fit perfect. I'm not sure why the discrepancy, and am wondering if anyone else has noticed this. I used up some stash as well for this, but did not line or anything like that so the dresses aren't wearable.
