After the 'Superman Fiasco', I was left scratching my head about what to wear to the impending Christmas function. I didn't want to wear one of my very much thrashed work dresses but wanted something that wouldn't slot into the white elephant category either.
Enter this dress, which while I love it, had remained unworn. I feltthought that I needed something else. McCall's 6611 had been on my planned makes for some time since both Lizzie and Leith made their fabulous versions. The only stumbling block was which fabric to choose. Sensible me would have chosen black, but I realised that I had the perfect shade of blue crepe in my stash to go with this dress. Better still, it was a piece my mother gave me and was free!
Excited about my revelation, I set to work. I knew I didn't want this in a double layer as the pattern suggests because it would be too warm for a summer jacket, so lining it was the obvious choice.
I had some white with blue spot satin lining left over from another project which became my lining of choice. I made the jacket to size 10 and actually changed nothing. I am really stoked with the finished product and the icing on the cake came with these fabulous matching leather sandals, that I found on Styletread.
