Final Review on McCall's M6731

As usual with children patterns that I have done in the past, the pattern seems to run big.

I had not problems doing this dress but when I tried it on my daughter it was just too big.
The bodice is to wide and I measured and thought it would be ok, but it still big.  The recommended length was also too long.  I altered the length and it still longer than usual.

I don't want to give up about sewing for children but I recommend sizing down when using this pattern.

I will keep the dress for next year.

Nice review. I'd love to start sewing for children. Would be good practice for me as well. :-)

The pattern is labeled as easy and I agree that it was fairly simple
