With Spring and Summer right around the corner, you may be thinking about transitioning your wardrobe from heavy fabrics to a cool and summery silhouette. Look no further- introducing my latest McCall Pattern 7568! Create this beautiful dress in your favorite summery cotton print, cool linen, or a solid fabric with a beautiful lace overlay.

Keep the length long for an elegant evening dress or for a formal event such as a wedding, or adjust the length to a shorter knee length for a fun and summery look.

This dress can be casual simply by changing the fabric, or perfect for a Summer garden wedding sewn in white silk and the bridal color for complementary bridesmaids designs. If it’s your own wedding, you might want to make more of a statement with what you wear. An elegant dress like what you might find on a website like this – HTTPS://WWW.WINNIECOUTURE.COM/ – is the kind of dress women dream of wearing having seen numerous celebrities don similar ones for their own weddings.
