New favorite summer dress: super simple organic knit

It's been off and on super hot and super rainy here! Early June in Oregon, what did we expect?

But, I've been ready for summer dresses again with last weekend in the 80's and this weekend maybe up to 90 degrees. I wanted a really simple, comfy, easy dress for this weather, so I pulled out the leftover fabric from this maxi dress--really nice, medium-heavy weight interlock knit from Organic Cotton Plus. I had a super simple pattern, McCall's M6744, and made view A, although I did have to piece the bodice front, oops! Worth it, great use for leftover high quality fabric.

It laid really well at the neckline, which is just a folded-over-once hem.

This weight is great for a dress! And this dress is so comfy and great for hot days!
Jacket: J.Crew via Goodwill. Purse: Nine West (similar). Necklace: Old Navy (similar). Shoes: Report old. Dress: DIY!

I'm ready for the hot weather!

P.S. If you're in Portland this weekend, visit me at my book signing for DIY Wardrobe Makeovers at Lloyd Center Barnes & Noble! RSVP here!
