A simple cotton dress made from McCall’s 5039. I made this several years ago but have only worn a few times.
1. I like the fit, but feel like a little girl when I wear it.
2. Despite adding a couple of inches when cutting out the bodice, the neckline tends to dip low and I find myself contantly tugging at it.
3. I’m considering refashioning it a bit, so I’ll wear it out more.
cotton fabric and a bit of lace for trim
