I made this little dress from McCall’s pattern 6359 which is a tunic top. I added 7" to the length of the pattern to make into a dress. I also made a quick sash that was not part of the pattern. I wanted a fun, easy, comfortable and sexy little dress for my trip to Mexico. I made this in about 3 hours, just in time to stuff it in my luggage.
I love the pleat in the front, although not very visable with the printed fabric. I also love the racer back detail.
