Can you believe it is already Fall? Summer is long over now!! But this summer girl still wants to hang on to a bit of summer. I am already dreaming of next summer. 2020 has been a crazy year for everyone. Although I felt a bit defeated at times during the COVID pandemic I was determined to get some great summer dress makes in. Even if I was only going to wear them around the house, to eat and to family events. So I am going to show three of my favorite today, tomorrow and Friday. So check back each day.
McCalls 6884 is such a sexy little number with the slim fit around the waist and the slit in version D. For this summer look I wanted the coolness of the sleeveless version.
The pattern described it as, “MISSES’ DRESSES: Close-fitting, pullover, mock wrap dresses have right front variations, tie ends and narrow hems. C and D: gathered right front. Designed for medium-weight moderate stretch knits. SUGGESTED FABRICS: Jerseys, Cotton Knits and Novelty Knits.”
Honestly when I saw the cover picture shown I was not that impressed. While it is a good basic wrap style dress it was not what I was going for. But then I realized D had that look I was going for.
I found the fabric in my stash from Pretty Posh Prints from about a year or more ago. It is a super soft Double Brushed Poly. It topped off the look with a sexy island girl look. The dress is super comfortable and I may make another one in a solid.
Unfortunately you wont find the pattern on the McCalls site anymore but check out Ebay and I am sure you will. My tip for buying patterns on Ebay is to put the pattern name and number into a saved search with an alert and as soon as someone lists it you will get an alert.
I made a size 14 in this but had lost weight before pictures were taken so I could size down now but it was true to size when I made it.
