This striped, A.W.A.K.E. inspired handkerchief hemmed dress starts with a simple dress pattern with even easier pattern alterations!
Would you be surprised if I said you can use this same pattern to recreate A.W.A.K.E.’s flowy dress as seen here?
Well, you can and it’s easy!
Here’s what you need:
- McCalls m6886,
- Fabric, almost double the amount of fabric needed for one dress.
I got this striped Back and White Fashion Knit (as seen below) from Hancock Fabrics, HERE.
To recreate this look, you will make a quick alteration to your McCall dress pattern by EXTENDING
the sides of your dress to the selvage edge, as seen below,
Continue to sew pattern according to directions!
Again, what I love about this dress is how easy it is to whip up,
sure it takes up more fabric, but the look does NOT disappoint!
In fact, if you continue to check out the rest of A.W.A.K.E.’s collection,
you will find this similar handkerchief hemmed dress in a variety of fabrics and lengths!
Hopefully you can give it a try and let me know what you think!
