Easy Spring/Summer Shirtdress…McCall’s 6885

I made another dress for warm weather. This time I used M6885 which is a shirtdress with a front band/placket. This pattern is for woven material and has a variety of sleeve and style options. Frankly, I wanted to make a shirtdress and this one was much easier than some of my other patterns because it only has the four buttons in front, rather than several going down to the hem. With that being said, this is a pull-over style dress. 


I made View C, which they say to use cording as your belt. I like it unbelted, but you can certainly use what you like for the belt. 



I didn’t make any changes to this pattern. The material I used is a cotton shirting so it washes well and is lightweight (great for hot, humid summer days).

Now, on to the next project (once I figure out what that will be). Happy sewing…

  1. I love shirt dresses and have been looking at this pattern, too. The plackets always stop me. For some reason I have trouble with them. I love the colour and pattern of this dress; you will wear this a lot this summer. Just beautiful!

  2. Great work! I love your version of this shirt dress! This is something I wanted to add to my summer sewing list too! Thanks for the review!

  3. Beautiful job, Denise! This dress is going to be so comfortable for those sticky summer months. Breathable cotton and not too close to the skin… 😉
