First is this pink print dress:
I used McCall's 6923 and I made a size 14.
Instead of adding sleeves, I just extended the shoulders. There's a long zipper in back, but it really isn't needed as I can pull the dress over my head without it.
Close up showing the fabric. I got it at Joann's on sale for $2.50 yd. & used 3 yards.
The second one is a "duro olowu" style dress, similar to this.
I made one like this a few years ago and still like to wear it, but wanted a longer one.
I used this OOP McCall's pattern.
I made the dress 6 inches longer, added a band between the bodice and skirt part; added a band to the bottom of the hem, and a tie belt. I made a size 12 (instead of my usual 14) since it's very loose fitting.
I used 2 coordinating cottons that I had in my stash.
