This is my version of McCalls 6700. The original dress is maxi length, and I do love the look of it as a maxi, but I’m too short to get away with wearing a dress like that. Long skirts make me look very square, and that is not a good look for me. Instead I shortened it to knee length. I also lowered the armscye 2cm, tacket the front down right inte the center of the V-neck to prevent gaping. I excluded the shoulder ties and the belt. I might make the belt later though.
