McCall's 6886: The Most Versatile Pattern Yet!I


I am not much of a dress person, but I have had my eye on a few styles.  I am really into the Sweater Dress and I think it is very versatile.  From a tunic to a long dress, with boots or leggings, a sweater dress can be styled so many different ways. 

Here a are a few styles I found on the Internet that I can see myself rocking:








I have seen this pattern used to make almost everything, from a Jacket to a long sleeve tunic.  I love a pattern where I can get the most use from.  Being from Florida you we never really get a winter until maybe late January early February were we dip down into the 40's and maybe the 30's a few days here and there. I made this very light weight sweater knit dress to wear on those cool nights out with my Mr. on a date.  I can see me pairing this with some cute kitten heeled boots and a suede jacket.  

I added a neckband instead of folding over and finishing edges as the pattern suggested, and sleeve cuff.  I am very please at how it came out, and will share pictures as soon as wear it.   Here it is:
