I’m going to be creating a tutorial for how to make your own Barcelona Balcony dress. Read all about the dress, here. For those who are keeping up, I did skip ahead to Dress #6 of the Dazzling Dozen, since this eye-catching red dress was intended for Valentine’s Day.
I will be showing you how to replicate this dress, more specifically for a plus size, but anyone should be able to follow along. We will be modifying the McCall’s M6893 sewing pattern to achieve this. Never altered style lines on a pattern before? I will show you how!
- McCall’s M6893 in the size that is closest to your measurements.
- Paper scissors
- Scotch tape
- Large paper (You can use brown packing paper, tissue paper, news print, or even poster board.)
- Pounce wheel (for thicker paper choice) OR tracing wheel
- Soft tape measure
- Hip curve, french curve, or flexible ruler to draw curved lines.
You are now ready for Issue 2.
