McCall's 6506

I cut this dress out last summer with every intention of making it "right away" but didn't get to stitch it up until recently.
It's a TRACY REESE design.  It wasn't until I'd gotten the pattern home that I discovered this delightful fact.  I love most things by TRACY REESE!
I love the style of it...the pleated skirt, the large collar, the pockets...yes I love the pockets but you don't see them here do you?...not sure why I omitted them but now finding myself wishing that I hadn't.  On the other hand...I meant to omit the attached belt.      
 The fabric is a lightweight, highly woven, slightly stretchy, cotton from Virginia's stash.  I would venture to say that she must have really liked this fabric as there was more than enough to begin with and still some left.   
 This is an easy dress to make and just as easy to wear.  It does have quiet a few buttons but I think it adds to the design.  I runs a little large in the waist but other than that...it's perfect!  Thank you Ms. Reese!
 Enjoying the last few days of Summer!!! - Hope you are too!!! 
Until next time...PEACE AND BLESSINGS!!!
