Easy to make, easy to wear. I wanted a casual, cool, fun little dress to wear for these hot summer days. I made this McCall’s Generation Next pattern 6354 in just a few days out of a lovely silk/linen blend lightweight fabric. I even made the 1/2" single fold bias binding myself from the same fabric, using the other side of the fabric. I love the outcome as it is cool, cute and comfy.
Silk/linen blend woven
1/2 inch elastic
