I Made Another Dress!

Yesterday I cut out a simple knit dress and since I had some time before dinner, I started sewing it together.  By dinner time it was all sewn up and hemmed!  The pattern is McCall's 6886.  I used the shortest length, the scoop neckline, and the short sleeves.  (There are two longer lengths; a crew neck and a v-neck; and both 3/4 length and full length sleeves plus a sleeveless option that can all be mixed and matched.)  It's made in a cotton/spandex (95%/5%) knit from Art Gallery Fabrics.  I have a store bought dress that's very similar to this design so I chose my size based on those measurements. I sewed it completely on my serger and hemmed the neck, sleeves, and lower edge with the coverstitch machine.

I think this will be great for Summer with a cute pair of sandals.  I'll probably make another one or two because while it looks pulled together, this kind of dress feels like pajamas!

Tomorrow there will not be a dress.  There will be something else.
