Black drape dress

I needed another black dress to wear to the 
art theater the other night, so I sewed this 

easy McCall's 6069 pattern.
I used a heavy ponte de roma knit
that feels luxurious to wear.

I did a few mods by having the back
drape more than the front,
as I had made this dress a few years back 
& was forever pulling up the front 
bodice gape.
I also added about 2 inches to the

An easy dress to sew but took me about 4 hours rather
than the 1 hour the pattern claims.
I like this style with the inseam pockets
but I always belt it as
it looks too frumpy without it!

Sew you later!
