Tame tiger – McCalls 6243

What’s there not to love about a dress made of ponte? Or even 2 types of ponte – a solid and an animal print. And an animal print that fits in with Jungle January?
I made View B, with 2 zips at the front. Check out the hem length on this picture.

I know ponte is usually seen as a winter fabric but with the hot weather we’ve had this week, I say phoowee to that idea.
So I’ve gone for a tame tiger version and the dress fits.

And I did add the back zip for a nicer fit.

While this pattern has been out for a couple of years, it’s taken me that long to get to it. While the hem length is mid thigh on the model, it’s the right length for this kitty kat.

BTW: I’m so glad to be sewing real clothes again. I’m so not a bag lady.
PS: Another meow is on the way with some fabric from my stash and a recent trip to Melbourne. I surprised myself.
