Albany, New York...
Here’s the “country dress” I made using McCalls 2608. The pattern is actually a shirt pattern but I had enough fabric to add length and make it a little dress. It is not, in fact, the same Built by Wendy pattern that created this dress (which, as my friends can attest to, I have never actually worn out in public. The neckline chokes me a bit and it’s shaped funny round the midsection.) I can see myself getting sick of it as a dress and cutting it back down to shirt size, but until then…
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
