Fuchsia wool dress

There is nothing more special than a hot pink wool.  When I originally ordered this fabric from moodfabrics.com, I had no idea what I was going to make but I just knew I had to have this fabric.  It’s a medium weight 100% wool that’s simply amazing.  If you plan to pick some up, hurry it’s almost sold out.  It’s one of those perfect wool’s with a bit of stretch perfect for dresses, skirts and coats.

This dress was made using the bodice to McCalls M5927 view B and self drafted skirt with the following alterations:
-Added 1.5″ to the height of the neck
-Faced the bodice with the same wool fabric
-Added a gathered sleeve with zipper detail
-Added a 58″x19″ pleated skirt to the bodice
