Burgundy Sweater Dress + Pattern Review – McCall’s 7020

BURGENDY SWEATER DRESS - ROSY | PEÑA

Hello BEAUTIES! I hope your weekend was wonderful, I spend some of my time sewing which is always a pleasure & taking a few pics for the blog! Today I’m reviewing this easy yet chic pattern, McCall’s 7020. This was my first time sewing the pattern and I’m not even sure when I purchased it but I’m glad that did!  Technically the descriptions says these are top and tunic variations but the tunic length can double as a dress as there are no revealing slits anywhere, it’s a boxy shape pattern but I love the collar it adds just the right amount of something. 😉

I’m not going to keep you long today! Make sure you check out my YouTube channel & subscribe if you haven’t already, I’m new to the Vlogging world but I’m really enjoying the process & chatting with other people who LOVE sewing! This sweater dress will be in my October Makes Video as well, where I’ll chat more about the pattern along with the other garments I have made this month! 🙂 Pattern Review and style photo’s below! Have a great Monday everyone! 🙂 Enjoy! 


Pattern Description: Misses’ Pullover Tops and Tunic – McCall’s 7020

Pattern Sizing: Xsm – Med, I cut the Xsm.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes this garment has a simple construction so it’s not hard to follow along, to a true beginner the collar may be a tad tricky but if you make your markings you will be fine!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the overall simple shape and ease of wear, I was not fond of how low the pockets are on view E. Next time I will leave the pockets out all together or raise them up 3-4 inches or so.

Fabric Used: Rib knit, from Joan’s Fabric.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I recently started a “TNT” fall/winter section in my pattern collection and this is my second pattern to add to it! The slightly shorter variations or even this longer version would look great paired with black leggings, which I plan to use and abuse this fall season! LOL. I do recommend, it’s a great casual/chic pattern piece to add to your collection.BURGUNDY SWEATER DRESS - ROSY | PEÑA

  1. BOMB as always. The color is perfect for fall and it looks great paired with the boots. I actually bought that pattern recently but to make the hoodie version that Mimi did a long time ago. Now that I see it made the original way, I may not even bother with the hoodie alteration. 🙂

    1. THANK YOU DARI! That must have been why I bought this pattern as well! I never did her version but I do love this pattern as is! I see more made up in the future for sure! 🙂
