McCall’s 6200

This pattern was a favorite of Erin’s, so I made it again.

Here is the first blog post and review

I did not make any changes since the pattern has plenty of ease.  It might be something she will wear after the baby, but I remember being sick of my maternity clothes!

I have been substitute teaching quite a bit since the start of school in Mid-August but this week no schedules days and I have not been called yet.  That is a good/bad thing.  Good – time to sew, clean, wash windows, etc.  Bad – no paycheck and I wanted to wear my new maxi-dress, maybe next week.


  1. Darn - with the pillow on the form that almost looks like my shape! *LOL* And this dress is on my to-be-sewn list...I'm gonna try to go with the thought that it won't look like a maternity dress on me! However, the one you made for Erin is adorable!

  2. Great dress! love the baby bump - LOL

  3. Such a cute dress! I love the pillow baby pump. :]

  4. Awww....look at the baby bump! Thanks for the text update today. Been a busy week for me. I really like that sweater knit...Joann's has some really cute stuff right now.

  5. This is great dress for now and for post baby arrival, with a belt. Clever thinking Lori.

  6. Cute dress. I made this pattern but did not work for me. I think I needed to go down a size. Really cute fabric. Dress will definitely work before and after pregnancy.
