Then & Now: McCalls 6744

With Summer here along with the rising temps, my need for comfort while in transit to and from the office calls for easy, breezy, but casually professional.  McCalls 6744 is perfect in that it features easy to wear dolman sleeves, elastic waist &  feminine wrap front.





Now 2014
This dress is still hard at play, slip on and go. 


The cotton knit is just right for the heat & humidity.

The dolman sleeves are not too wide and fits nicely under my blazer which I need when the office temps dip to what feels like 55 degrees.

Another McCalls 6744 will definitely be a must make for this year, in the meantime... off to enjoy a lil fun afterwork in my M6744.

Until then Have a Great Week.
