I really wanted to make this dress once again. I used McCall’s M6520. This time I used a cotton blend that had a bit of spandex to it. So, there’s a bit of stretch to it which is fine since this fits pretty close to the body. I cut a size 8 for it.
The inspiration was the Spring military inspired trends I saw in some of the magazines. Plus, I just think this is one of those dresses you can dress up or down anyway you want for years to come.
1.5 yards of cotton spandex blend, eight 1/2 inch buttons, interfacing, thread
