Cap Sleeved Raglan Dress- McCall’s 7122

I recently entered a pattern stash contest on Patternreview.com. This is a great contest for those who can use some motivation to use up their current fabric and pattern stash. It’s one of my goals this year and so far, I’ve been doing a good job!

I bought both pattern and fabric last year in June 2020. McCall’s 7122 is a pattern for a pullover dress which is close-fitting through the bust. It has a neck band and a narrow hem. I made View B with the cap sleeves. The dresses also have options for side slits, back slits and long sleeves. There is also an option to make the top as a tunic to wear with leggings. And speaking of leggings, there is a pattern included to make those as well! The leggings have an elasticized waist and no side seams. This is a great pattern to have in your stash for sure!

This pattern is labeled as easy. The instructions were easy to follow. It is designed for the beginner to learn how to attach a neck band, sew raglan sleeves and sew with knit fabric. I used a double brushed knit to make my dress. This pattern is designed for medium-weight moderate stretch knits including cotton knits, jerseys and interlock.

My favorite part of this dress are the raglan sleeves. I also like the cap sleeved option. I like how fast and easy it is to complete this project.

I plan to use this pattern again. It’s a good pattern to have in your stash especially to make raglan sleeved shirts. A big plus is that it includes a pattern for the leggings.

Happy Sewing!
