McCall’s 7345 – Almost there!

Earlier this month, I posted the first of the toiles I made up for our upcoming production of ‘Fallen Angels’ – an adorable little mid-30’s dress, made using a vintage pattern.  Remember? 

Well, since then we had an initial fitting on the actress – there were some modifications that had to be made, which wasn’t surprising.  The original pattern was quite a bit smaller than the actress (not uncommon for vintage patterns), so I had to grade it up a fair amount.  Today was the final fitting – and it’s going to look great on stage!  All that’s left is the final hem – marked here with safety pins.
