Dress :: DIY using McCall’s 7543, Chambray fabric from local Yardage Town,
It has been ages since I’ve made anything and needed an easy and fast project to complete to hopefully help me to get my sewing mojo back. This DIY chambray tie sleeve off the shoulder midi dress was just what the doctor ordered. I am obsessed with off-the-shoulder tops and dresses and want them in every single color. But I saw a chambray midi length dress by Tibi and instantly fell in love with the look of the dress, but definitely not the $495 price tag. You can take a look at the $495 Tibi version here. Totally out of my budget. So I looked through my fabric stash and found that I had some chambray fabric in the same color and McCall’s 7543 was a great pattern to use to create something similar. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. You can read my pattern review below.
