Eggplant and Ochre



I've always loved these two colors together and there is something about these opposites on the color wheel that just shouts "Fall is in the air". My yellow ochre tights don't show up very well in the photo for some reason, they are more striking in person. And I am completely in love with McCall's 6163! Easy, stylish, form-fitting and a great faux-wrap for any season. I foresee many more versions of this dress in my closet. 
 
I pretty much sewed this one straight out of the envelope, sans the side zipper. No design changes and only a couple of my preferred techniques thrown in. Those are talked about in my Pattern Review here. 
 
Thanks for stopping by!...To any of you on the east coast, stay high and dry from Sandy. And here's hoping most days are only sew-sew!
 
Best,
Dorcas
