Happy Valentine's Day!

It's another McCall's 5742 made in polyester.
Dresses A, B, C have lined bodice, self-faced band, gathered skirt, raglan sleeve variations, back zipper, purchased trims and built-in petticoat with tulle ruffle; dress A has elbow length gathered sleeves with sleeve band, self-fabric flowers and decorations; dress B has sleeves with elastic casing, contrast ruffle, ribbon trim and ribbon bow; dress C has sleeves with elastic casing and lace trim; all view lengths are mid-knee, not including lace trim for dress C.             
Fabric: Stripped polyester
Notions: Red Zipper and thread
Did it look like the pattern: Yes
Alterations: I took the pattern to be just as described in the bodice length. Apparently, it was about 4" shorter than expected so adjustments were made.

    1. Thanks Judy! Don't overlook the tablecloths in polyester. Each of these little dresses were made from markdown tablecloths.
