A houndstooth dress

My Fashion Star McCalls' 6553 pattern is finally done!

This pattern called for interfacing, I only had the fusible
facing left so I made it with that.

The pattern pocket instruction I still do not understand but used my own
way which is how I learned to make pockets.....from a book.
I love a dress with pockets!

I used a linen blend fabric.

Even I could understand the loop tie but I made it with a little ruffle.  I chose a 
fun pink button.

I serged the hem with tangerine thread & still might do a proper hem but I
wore it like this today.

The back interfacing gives the dress a crisp look that I am liking.

So this "easy" dress made me revisit interfacing as I had not sewn with that
in a couple of years & made me remember how to insert seam pockets!

Sharing my project with:
Sew & Tell Make it Wear it

Sew you later!

This is gorgeous! I'm so glad I saw this at sewcountrychick... I'm always looking for something to make for myself but haven't seen anything as nice as this before, I'm definitely going to try it:)

I love the dress, I really like the serged hem in a different color, I think it adds a little something to the dress. Great job!
