McCall's 6890 - View C/D

FABRIC TYPE/SOURCE:
Green Floral - Ankara (this version is a lightweight cotton with a little stretch) purchased from a local vendor
Navy Gingham (100% cotton) purchased at Wal-Mart.
LIKES:  the overall simplicity of the dress and no closures!
DESIGN CHANGES:  shortened hemline and added a 7" band
ALTERATIONS:  None but would lower the waist by about an inch or so if I should make it again.
Until next time...PEACE AND BLESSINGS!!!
