My Friday Night Sew-In Dress

I participated in the Friday Night Sew-In and used my favorite knit dress pattern of all time, McCalls 5423, to create this dress. It looks much better on but I didn't I'm not in the mood to get all dolled up and strut my stuff--I promise to later this week.



I got the neckline drape idea from this top I made, Butterick 5138, only I shaped the pattern piece differently and it's isn't as deep.

These are the other versions of the same dress, neither of which look like the actual pattern!
