Even though it is late October, the weather is decidedly warm during the day. And although a pastel cotton sundress would work with the temperature, it just feels wrong. So out came a summer weight cotton seersucker dress with a definite fall color palette – perfect!
The pattern is McCalls 6758, a vintage pattern I purchased on ebay.
The finished dress looks quite different from the original pattern because I did not have enough seersucker fabric to complete the entire dress. It turns out, I prefer the contrasting collar and cuffs to solid stripes - I just love when mistakes turn out for the best! The length is also a departure from the pattern, but the dress just did not look right with a longer skirt.

I love seersucker – no ironing needed. Well, except for the solid colored cotton portions. This is the ideal dress for the strange between-seasons weather we are experiencing!
