McCall's M5800

Hey ladies!

I got this cute dress pattern for a white, cherry print that I'm going to make into a pretty summer dress (wee! so excited!). I've got it traced onto tracing paper (cause I have this thing against actually cutting up patterns...), but then I looked at the directions to see if seam allowances were included or if I need to cut it bigger, but I can't see that information (maybe it's cause I've been awake too long...).

So, can any of you tell me, does McCall's usually include seam allowances or not? :noidea:

Oh yes! Most times they are 5/8" allowances unless stated otherwise. I think that information is across the top someplace on the instruction sheet. When they want other allowance, it's usually on the pattern. I just made a hat, and the top seams were 1/4" and it was marked on that hat piece. The other pieces were the 5/8" as usual.

Thank you :)

I'm just afraid of messing up my dress, I don't even want to do it wrong on the muslin lol
