McCall’s 6559 Maxi Dress Completed

This is the first time that I’ve made a maxi dress. I see them (everywhere) and I like them, but I never bothered to make one myself – until now. This pattern is so easy! It only took a few hours to make. And I actually lined mine with tricot so it would hang better and not be clingy. 


 I also made the shorter jacket (View A) from a piece of cotton interlock knit I had on hand.


Since the dress is sleeveless, having something to keep warm indoors when the A/C is too high is crucial. 


This is very easy to make and great to wear day or night. It’s something I can see myself making again, although I don’t think I would line the next one if it’s not really necessary. I think the lining has made the dress heavier than it would be otherwise. But, the lining has made the dress hang well, which I really like.

  1. Hmmmmmm. My comment flew off somewhere! I really LOVE this. It is gorgeous ON YOU! I actually made a dress like that last year. I need to pull it out of its hiding place in my closet.
    Hugs, Joy
