I like to sew Destination Dresses – when I sew something to wear on an overseas trip. When I knew MS and I were going to Seoul in South Korea, I decided to make McCall’s 7243 in a thicker knit to wear in the still-cold Springtime there.

Size made:AX5 (sizes 4-12 included). I made size 6
Pattern pieces:5 for view D
