Easy summer dress

I finished McCall’s 5974 the other day. It’s a very easy to make, knit dress that should be great for travel or just a day out. This is a Palmer/Pletsch pattern so there’s a lot of information about getting the fit you want included in the pattern instructions. I made the basic View A which has short sleeves. This only took a couple of days to put together (which is pretty quick for me). I could have done it in a day if I had worked on it all day. I used a stretch jersey knit (one of the recommended fabrics) which meant that I did not need to include the zipper in the back. I can pull this dress over my head so that made it even easier to make. If I were to make this again I would make the V-neck next time and probably try a solid color.
