#RoyalWeddingSewAlong Dress Reveal (McCall's 7684)

Thank you to my friend Ben for taking these photos! And, of course, thank you so so much to McCall Pattern Company for organizing the Royal Wedding Sew Along and inviting me to participate. 

After all these weeks of sewing, I feel like I don't have too much to say about this dress that hasn't been said already! This is a wonderful pattern, and I'm thrilled with the results--perfect for a spring wedding. This sewalong has been such a fun experience; I've had a wonderful time chatting with all of you here, on instagram, and on facebook. Additionally, it's also been a great way for me to recognize my skills and weaknesses! Here's the whole sewalong, in case you missed anything:

Week 1: Style Inspiration and Suitable Fabrics
Week 2: Choosing a Size and Fitting your Muslin
Week 3: Preparing your Fabric
Week 4: Constructing the Bodice
Week 5: Constructing the Skirt
Week 6: Installing the Zipper
Week 7: Hemming with Horsehair Braid
Week 8: Finishing Touches

One of the best parts of spending so much time on a single pattern is that I know it really well at this point and have lots of ideas for hacking it! Don't be surprised if you see this pattern pop up again at some point. Thank you so much for following along as I made McCall's 7684. Next up: a bit of relaxation and an easy make, I think! :)

xoxo,
allie

ps: best wishes to Harry and Meghan!
