New York, New Yo...
I used McCall’s pattern, M6551 for this dress. It took a day to put together (and another couple of hours to do the hem by hand). It is so, so, comfortable. I plant to make a few more of these! Runs a bit wide at the neck. I might consider narrowing it a smidge in future. And the material I used feels heavenly on my skin. Falls nicely too. LOVE this dress!
Crepe for the outer Layer, and silk/rayon for the lining.
