The pattern is McCall’s 6791 view C; described as close-fitting, pullover dresses has right side pleats, shaped left side, underdress, draped back with opening, and raw edge finish. Narrow hem finish on necklines, armholes, longer than regular length sleeves pushed-up.
I made quite a few adjustments to the way the pattern was constructed, read about them on my blog: Sew Melodic
The pattern is designed for Mid weight moderate stretch knits; I used a black and olive colored crepe knit.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
