Outfit of the Week - 10+17 August 2015
Our 'Outfit of the Week' for 10 and 17 August 2015 is McCall's 7084! Get 10% off this pattern until 12 pm on Wednesday, 26 August 2015. Find the pattern (and all the coordinating fabrics) at the bottom of this page.
(Why is the 'Outfit of the Week' lasting so long this time round? It's because The Splendid Stitch is closed from 17-25 August for a summer holiday! You can still place orders during this period, but they won't be put in the post until 26-27 August.)
McCall's 7084 is an elegant shirt dress pattern with lots of options! There are two options for the collar: a regular shirt collar and a stand collar. There are four options for the sleeves: sleeveless, cap sleeves, short sleeves with a small cuff, and elbow length sleeves with tabs. Finally, there are two options for the skirt: a slight a-line and a full skirt with godets. Very versatile!
McCall's doesn't give a difficulty rating for this pattern. With the collar and the button band, I would probably rate this as an intermediate pattern. With regard to reviews, this has only been reviewed 3 times on PatternReview.com and all the reviews are positive.
Drawing on the inspiration images, I've recommended a few of our poplins, broadcloths and shirting fabrics. To see our wider range of fabrics in this category - and we've got a lot! - click here.
