It's Been A Long Time and McCall 6744

I can't believe I haven't posted since November of last year.  That is unbelievable and I have missed you all very much.  Life has been crazy busy and eventful, and time got away from me but, I haven't stopped crafting. I'll share some of that with you all in the future, but for now, I want to talk about McCall 6744.

 You all might know this pattern better by this picture.


I have had this pattern hanging around for quite some time.  I wanted to add another maxi to my collection of summer dresses and was interested in the racer back of this dress.



 I originally started with McCall 6559 and worked up a mini dress version of it,  but the racer back on that dress was not the look I was looking for.  I had almost forgotten about McCall 6744 but happened upon it when I was going through my pattern stash and liked the look. 


I especially liked that it has elastic in the waist. I made Version B. 


The fabric used was a rayon/polyester knit I picked up at Joann's right around July 4th.  I originally thought I'd make this dress up for the holiday, but never got around to it.  I'm so glad I finally did because I like it a lot.  It's very comfortable.
I'm thinking about making a couple of shorter versions to knock around the house in. With the heat we've been having lately, it's definitely one way to stay cooler.  Hope you are all doing well. 

Happy Crafting.
