Here are a couple of examples I found of what people have been able to create using the McCall’s 4491 pattern.
I think that this person did a particularly lovely job. While the colors wouldn’t work for Ari (she doesn’t strike me as a forest green type of person), I like the way this dress came out and could only hope that mine would be as beautiful:
On the other hand, here is an example of what someone did using the colors that I was originally thinking of using: Blue and silver. However, I think that this dress came out very poorly and the fabrics look very cheap. I’m not particularly fond of the crushed velvet, and certainly wouldn’t use the buttons. But color-wise, yes, this is very lovely:
And here are more versions/colors of the same gown. Again, these are absolutely gorgeous. I could only hope to be so talented!:
