Here is my novice attempt at modifying McCall’s M6534 pattern:


To make this one-strap dress, I cut the two skirt and two bodice pattern pieces. I darted the pieces as instructed, then attached the bodice upside-down to the skirt, omitting the zipper since using a jersey knit fabric. With the bodice upside-down, the dress had two “straps”. I cut off one of the straps, finishing the dress with a scooping one-strap neckline.


While not perfect, I am happy with my modifications and love the paint splattered fabric!

I hope to attempt this pattern again, correctly, in a linen-like fabric.
