Pattern Review: McCall’s 6321 Lined Evening Dress

Threads magazine - 158 – Dec. 2011/Jan. 2012 Issue

Style Tip: Great for a holiday event, this dress is perfect paired with stunning heels and a stylish belt.

This review was originally featured in Threads #158 (December 2011/January 2012).

McCall’s 6321

This dress features an elegant symmetric or asymmetric drape over the skirt. It is lined, semifitted, and has a bodice with a slightly gathered waistline seam, a straight skirt, and optional petal sleeves with gathered caps. Considering the details, it is quick to sew. Instructions and illustrations are clear and easy to follow. However, the text for one stitching line on the overlay drape is missing, though illustrated. Our tester envisions this elegant dress made from crepe de Chine with sheer tissue faille for the drape.

(Sized Misses’ 8-24 for busts 31.5-46 in. and hips 33.5-48 in.)

Style Tip: Great for a holiday event, this dress is perfect paired with stunning heels and a stylish belt.
