I have already cut the dress out and have been piecing it together.
I am using McCall’s pattern M4490 view c, but I would recommend M4491. Because, the one I am using the neck-line is gathered a little bit in the front, so I had to take it in before cutting it.
The floss is the same color as the fabric, its a different color in the picture so you could see it :)
The Leather string is for lacing and the Awl is for the eyelets. I am going to hand sew them, because I hate pounding grommets in and they should last longer. Plus, I think hand sewn eyelets look better.
