Lace Maxi

McCall's 9172  view A  was inspired by this beautiful Ashley Stewart dress. Of course, I had to have sleeves.



Fabric: Cream/Gold Crocheted Look Knit with polyester lining.

    1. Helen, I'm happy that I finally got a chance to wear it. I've been missing due to a death in my family. Sunday morning I wore it to breakfast with the children and grandchildren. It is a fun dress for someone my senior.
