Leggy Dress

I've been seeing a lot of McCall 6744 lately. I was really digging the easy, drapey vibe of the dress so I made my own.

I used a bright knit fabric purchased from the local Joann

This dress was cut and finished in under an hour. When I tried it on for the first time, I realized something looked "off" about the dress. I couldn't quite figure out what was wrong until scrutinizing it on the manequin.

I sewed the skirt and shirt parts going the opposite direction. Oops! I could've left it like that since it's a faux wrap anyway, but I couldn't. I ripped the seam out and redid it.

Minus that small hiccup, it was an incredibly easy and quick project. The results were fabulous.

Quick word of advice, if you live or are going somewhere very breezy, please tack down the skirt a little bit. I almost had a wardrobe malfunction in San Francisco.


  1. that dress is on my sewing list as we speak!!! I was just wondering about wardrobe malfunctions. Thanks for the hint!

  2. Great maxi dress. Lovely fabric choice.

    1. Thank you! I was surprised to see this fabric in the clearance aisle because it's so pretty and really soft.
