This was the first dress I’ve made! I love how it turned out, and the pattern is so simple it’s ridiculous.
Altered from McCall’s M5617:
added ribbon belt and altered back to cut straight across with elastic to hold in place (the front and back are supposed to be identical)
cotton/wool knit with just a bit of stretch, cut on the bias
Stitch studio (Cincy, OH) for providing the pattern
