I originally made this dress up in August for a weekend event. It’s a McCalls pattern – M5464. The dress fitted well at the time and I wore it without realising it was kind of short to wear to work. Of course I haven’t worn this to work and I might not. It will depend on the occasion.
Now I feel like to can wear this dress on the weekend, and not just around the house. I mean weekend wear while catching up with friend. I’m still not sure about wearing it to work. I’ll need to make a cardie, or wear it with a black jacket.
I enjoyed the challenge of making this work for me. The ruffle was from my a-line skirt pattern Butterick 3597.
