Then & Now McCall 6744


McCalls 6744: is an effortless silhouette with cross-over bodice, cut-on sleeves and an elastic waist , making it one of my go-to dresses during the summer for its easy breezy style.  

                                                                          May 2013

Of course, my favorite detail of this dress is the elastic waist that is a sure fire way to slim a thicker middle, 

                                                                         June 2013
   

It's one of those dresses that I find I turn to time again for my work week or slipping on for a casual weekend. 

                                                                        August 2014


This year I did a teeny refashion and added a casing to the shoulder seams and gathered with 1/2" elastic.... adding a lil newness to it.  

                                                                                June 2015

A perfect summer staple for any woman’s closet.

Until then,
Have a Great Week.
