McCall’s 6886 + Burda Style 04-2017-107 = Great Summer Dress

I bought this stripe knit at Tissus Mode De L’Orme in Granby, QC last summer while on vacation. I pictured a very simple dress from this fabric. While looking through my Burda Style magazines I came across the dress pictured below and knew this was perfect for my fabric. I love the back cut-out.

Making the ruching shown here required the pattern pieces to be quite long and I didn’t have enough fabric. Also, I wasn’t interested in the center back seam.¬† It has ruching as well.

I traced the Burda Style pattern and pulled out McCall’s 6886. It is my go-to knit dress pattern. The pattern never lets me down. I used the neckline from the Burda Style pattern and traced the back pieces onto the back piece of the McCall’s pattern.

The dress was quick to sew and turned out exactly as I had pictured it.

  1. Beautiful dress! I love everything about it. Good job matching the stripes in the sleeve area too…. not so easy to do.

  2. Wow Lucy! That is gorgeous. I’m obsessed with the length and the cut out in the back. Colors are great. Did you plan to have the black stripe hit right at your waistline? I think the stripe placement is spot on all over! You look amazing in this dress!
