How are you guys doing? Happy New Month, Yes! It's my birthday month, I am so excited and will be sharing some amazing news on my birthday post next Monday. In the meantime, today's post features a simple dress I made some weeks back with this printed scuba fabric from the Nicole Miller fabric collection exclusively at Joann's. I came across the fabrics while shopping at my local Joann's last month, I am so love with the collection that I want them all, the prints and quality of the fabrics are simply impeccable. I am currently making a special occasion dress with this metallic one HERE. Check out more of the iconic Nicole Miller fabric collection HERE. I kept the styling of the dress simple by pairing it with a white vest and a pair of nude pumps. 
Pattern Review: McCalls M6886
Pattern Description: Close-fitting, pullover dresses have neckline variations and stitched hems.
Pattern Sizing: It came in a size 6-14 and I cut a size 12.
Fabric Used: Nicole Miller Scuba Knit Fabric (HERE)
Did it look like the photo on the pattern envelope once you are done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, super easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the different lengths and neckline variations. I also like that it's super fast to make.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made? None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and Yes I would recommend it you want a fast and simple dress made with a knit fabric.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!


  1. I love this look. You've got a great eye for fabrics.

    1. Hi! I love your blog and ootds. I am new to sewing and love your color and print combinations, particularly your outfits made with ankara prints. I noticed you regularly wear Christian Louboutin pumps in your posts and was wondering if you ever considered writing a post about them. Personally I would love to know such things as which ones were you're first purchase, which you prefer, how you walk in them, take care of them, all that wonderful jazz. Just a thought and I would love to read that post. Thank you for sharing!
