I think McCall’s 6886 is one of the most versatile knit dress patterns to come along in a while. I find myself coming back to it when I want a great-fitting simple knit dress. For this version I lengthened the pattern to create a maxi dress.
I made this dress a couple of months ago but finally got around to taking pictures. The fabric was purchased last summer at my favorite fabric store: Tissus Mode De L’Orme in Granby, QC. I just returned from another trip to the area where I visited family and friends and stocked up on fabric.
I added a contrast binding at the neck. The pattern has you turn in the neck edge with a 5/8″ narrow hem. I usually add a binding sewn to the inside but this time I decided to have it show as a contrast.
There’s not a lot to say about this dress. I had a vision of what I wanted when I bought the fabric and McCall’s 6886 came through for me again.
