Chevron Design Dress

There have been lots of chevron inspired items shown around in crafty blog-land.  I am hooked!  I love it!  Which leads me to this dress!  Well, actually, this fabric!  I was in my local fabric store with my girlfriend and we stumbled upon this fabric! LOVE! LOVE!  It's lycra/streatchy/cool = COMFORTABLE .  We need cool here in this Arizona heat during the summer! It's also a great fabric to travel with because it doesn't need to be ironed and it hangs nicely!

So on to the dress!  Once I purchased the fabric I had this McCall's pattern M5893 just sitting in my craft room waiting to be used!  I think it's a good match!

This is a picture of the neckline.  The neckline was supposed to be a plain hem.  I decided to add some extra fabric and put a little loop to hold it in place.   

Easy, breezy, and comfortable!  What do you think? 


  1. Very cute! The decorative touch around the neck line really make the dress!
