McCall’s 8358 – Almond Rock

Here is a dress that took a long time to be published but was very quick to sew! It was only supposed to be a portable canvas, but it turned out so awesome!McCall's 8358 is a vintage 70s reissue from Laura Ashley… soon available in pdf format. It's a reversible wrap dress with square or V neckline options. And you can add an extra level on the hem.These are absolutely huge pattern pieces brought together by elastic at the neckline and shoulders. I made a size 10 when I should have made a 12 because the armholes are too tight for me. It's still very portable. The sleeve hems are also finished with elastic for a lovely ruffled puff effect.Almond Rock sews vintage McCall's 8358 Laura Ashley 70s reissue dress sewing pattern My best tip for this pattern is to lengthen the length of the ties A LOT. They are way too short to wrap around your body. I like to wear it both ways, but I find that my bra shows a little when the v-neck is in the back.Almond Rock sews vintage McCall's 8358 Laura Ashley 70s reissue dress sewing pattern He's very hungry for fabric, but I managed to find this soft star print viscose challis for £1 a meter at Dalston Mills and bought 6m of it. It is still available but has now been increased to £1.50/m. Having spares came in handy when I cut a piece in double thickness instead of single layer.Almond Rock sews vintage McCall's 8358 Laura Ashley 70s reissue dress sewing pattern This is such a satisfying project because the gathering is done with a bias channel all around the edges and then you feed the elastic through. Here's a photo showing the channel as I began to feed my elastic with a safety pin attached to the end to help guide me!
