Mint Medallion Dress

McCall's 6398 is such a fun pattern and I really like the fit. This is a Mint/Taupe Gray/Multi Medallion ITY knit from Fabric Mart. This is the same as the top here.


This time I lengthened it fifteen inches making it a midi dress. I didn't square the bottom, but made it pointed on each side.

 
Another midi length would be welcomed into my wardrobe.
 

 
This is so funny that  Melanie mentioned me turning around in this dress that I decided to go back and post it. For my condition, it was a very light turn, but enough to see the swing of the dress.

  2. Lovely flattering dress on you - and I love the hemline - it makes the dress a little more edgy :)

    1. Sarah, I think I like this length a little better than the maxi.

  7. You deserve to twirl all day long, that dress is wonderful!

    15 inches seams to be a magic lengthen amount for both of us...except when I do it (at only five feet tall), I get a maxi dress!

    1. Thank you! I know what you mean about length as I'm considered short by some, but always purchased average length pants.

    1. Thank you Helen! Yes, my hair is a little different since I no longer have a relaxer. It is natural (without chemicals).
