I spent the holidays in Phuket, Thailand to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday with his large family who came out from the UK. Of course I wanted to make something new to wear, but also something easy and not too dressy. I used McCall's 6069, an easy knit pattern I've made several times before. The pattern envelope calls this a 1 hour dress, but I don't think I'd ever be able to make anything that quickly. Maybe 3 in total?
I made the sleeveless cowl version, but changed the skirt to maxi length and left a slit in one side seam. The ITY jersey fabric is from China and has all my favourite colours in it so I'm glad to have used it for this special occasion.
I added a strap across the back (as shown for view C, the square front neck version) otherwise there is a tendency for it to fall off the shoulder with the deep cowl in the back.
Here are a couple of pictures of me before the party and I have only just noticed now that the back strap needs to be a bit shorter! Oh well!
Unfortunately this pattern has been out of print now for a while, but if you like easy knit dresses I'd recommend it if you can find it somewhere, I've got good use out of it over the years and am sure I'll use it again. I'm wondering now why I haven't yet made the long sleeve version....
