I made this dress to wear out to dinner on our 35th anniversary! For this summer knit dress I used McCall’s Fashion Star 6760, although I did alter the pattern a bit. On this version (my second of this pattern) I sewed in the gathers on the shoulder seams instead of using the drawstrings. I also decreased the fabric in the (almost) circle skirt so I could fit the pattern pieces on the fabric I had – in all about 3 yards. I did not have to use a zipper either, as it slips on and off easily. It’s very comfortable, and I have had several compliments while wearing it. I may just try the jumpsuit version!

    Oh, you will receive another one compliment from me! It’s perfect on you both the cut of the pattern and the colors of the fabric! It’s a very feminine and flattering dress. It will be fantastic as a jumpsuit as well!!
