New favorite summer dress: super simple organic knit
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!
