This One Didn't Make It


I finished this dress last night that did not make it in time to be submitted in the UFO contest. That's alright because I entered for inspiration to work on things like this dress that has been around my sewing area for awhile.
McCalls 3543 is an OOP. Can be made into a dress or jumper, has bust darts, back zipper and side slits. It says it's a 2-hour dress and on the bottom of the envelope it has 'sewing machine time'. So that doesn't include all the stuff I did in between, like getting a snack, watching tv, LOL. Needless to say, it took me longer than the two hours! I'm glad though it is no longer a UFO. I look forward to wearing it.

It's so great to move UFOs to the closet as finished products!

Nice dress anyway. I love the look.

Too bad it didn't make the UFO contest, but the bright side is you have a rockin' new dress to sport.

That's a nice dress! Even though it didn't make the contest, that's one less UFO--always a good thing :) .
