It’s so refreshing to start making spring projects so this time, I decided to make a simple yet trendy spring dress.
Off-the-shoulder Dress – check!
Cute Sleeves – check!
I decided to make McCalls 7543 which is an off-the-shoulder dress with elastic shoulders, split-and-tie sleeves, and a shaped hemline. I made it in this gorgeous 100% rayon fabric.
I paired this dress with these cute strappy, mustard heels. Wearing it with heels definitely elevates this simple dress.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, exactly like it
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy to follow
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Roling the edge of the sleeves was so difficult due the curves. Next time, I will serge and fold over just once.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not add the pockets
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Working on my second. This time, a top version
This is a great pattern for everyone and a great addition for the spring time
