Description

I really love the cut of this. Since it is getting colder I wanted to make something that would be versatile enough in the cold weather!

Material Notes

This fabric was so cheap (3 dollars a yard) and I love it. It is a knit, somewhere between the weight of a light sweater and jersey, and is primarily white with strips of gold going through.

      I based it off of a McCall’s pattern (m6161). And best of all it is one of their one hour patterns! It also has instructions for an added cowl neck or a v-neck

      thank you so muchh!! I did not completely follow a pattern but is is based off of a McCall’s pattern (m6161). I just basically made it shorter…made the sleeves longer…and made the base of the dress (the hips) wider. It is a great pattern though and also offers variations for a cowl neck and v-neck, with various sleeve lengths.
