During my trip to NYC I was so inspired by all the cute dresses I saw walking the streets. It was incredibly hot and humid during our visit. Maybe I was so taken because they all looked so cool, comfortable and adorable. The girls usually had on sandals or ballet flats. Because of that, I came home with the plan to sew a dress or two to finish out our hot summer which goes into October.
I started off at my only fabric store choice, JoAnn Fabrics. This is what I came home with.
This is McCalls #M6102. I decided on View B with little short sleeves. Unlike the pattern, though, I made the sleeves out of the contrasting fabric. I also shortened it a tiny bit and made some fit adjustments. Here she is.
Here's a closer picture of the detail.
Simple, simple. I love it. Now on to dress #2. What have you sewn lately?
