The Little Gray Dress – Another Version of M6886 

A couple years ago my husband surprised me and the kids with a trip to NYC. It was my family’s second trip there within a 2 year span.

My family loves NYC.

On our second trip there I took a solo trip into the Garment District. My initial plan was to  only visit Mood Fabrics but when I did my research I discovered that there were several other Fabric stores in the area.

The Gray Knit Ponte that I used for this version of McCalls 6886 was purchased in one of those other small NYC fabric shops.  I only purchased 2.5  yards so, I have been holding on to it for the past 2 years waiting for the right project.

I wanted a simple dress with a voluminous statement sleeve but with my limited yardage I didn’t have enough fabric to make what I had in mind.

So I decided that instead of making a set in sleeve, I would make the dress sleeveless and add a Statement Sleeve overlay at the shoulder right above the top of the arm opening.

I love how it turned out. This dress is so comfy that I’m actually lounging in it right now.

I decided to go with black and gold accessories for this look.

I have one more version of M6886 planned for later this month. I plan to update my next version with another Fall 2017 trend. 

Thanks for stopping by. Please come and visit again soon.
