McCall’s 9158 complete

Well, mostly complete.  I’ve decided that my crinoline hits me at an unflattering length, so I’m making a new one.  I don’t want to hem the dress until I have the crinoline done.  While I was working on this, I wasnt sure I was happy with it.  I think winter sewing just isn’t as fun as bright, crisp cottons in lovely prints.  However, this one might not be a fun sundress, but I think the understated houndstooth works.  I did make two major mistakes.  I sewed the zipper into the right side seam instead of the standard left side and I put the pockets in way too low to be useable.  I may end up sewing up the seams and cutting off the pockets.  Other than those two things, I’m quite happy with it.
