McCall's 5742 dress is made using beige brocade.

Instead of gathers, pleats were formed on the back and front for a different look. Every scrap of fabric was used, so there wasn't enough to cut the sleeve bands as wide as the pattern required. Leaving the sleeve band off and allowing it to become flared sleeves would have given the dress a completely different look.


Thanks for all of your wonderful comments. I hope to respond to each message.
