Today, I made a maxi dress. And it is my favorite dress of the summer so far. Perfect for Friday night porch dinner and lounging around on the patio.

McCalls 6073 Maxi

The dress is made from McCall's 6073. I used a stash knit from Joann's, and really made it straight from the pattern. This is an easypeasy dress, and the fit is terrific.

My adjustments were the usual full bust adjustment. I also modified by not putting the elastic in the waist. I'm not quite sure why it needed elastic...

perhaps it's my menopausal spread? It seemed to fit just fine around my middle...no further elasticizing necessary.

Feelin' groovy.
