BLOGLIKECRAZY 2016 DAY 9: Work Wear Wednesday (WWW)...

...a whole lot has already been said about McCall's 6886.  There are 130 reviews on Pattern Review; I've made the dress three times myself, so I guess this means that everybody and her sister loves this pattern.   I know I do!  I am planning on stitching this simple design in yet another gorgeous knit some time soon.  The pattern is so simple that it allows the fabric to completely dictate the style and mood of your finished garment.  It's a great knit sloper with so many possibilities.  If you haven't tried it I suggest you do:  4 pattern pieces, neck and sleeve variations, no bust dart equals love, love, love!
McCall's 6886

I decided not to wait until Halloween 2017 to wear my dress after blogger friend Nancy K left this comment:

I want that fabric! It's a great dress for anytime, not just Halloween. Alexander McQueen is still using skulls for scarves and I think some garments.

I love Alexander McQueen's brand styles, but who knew, I certainly didn't!  I need to start paying better attention.
So with a great big thanks to Nancy K I wore my dress today - and everybody loved it, especially me!!!
