Back in December 2017, I made McCall's 7591 maxi dress using Italian Cotton/Viscose Challis. The dress was in my carry-on luggage when I visited Italy last month. It was lovely to wear it in Venice.
It was great that the dress was loose-fitting and the skirt was unlined because Venice was hot and humid. You want air between you and fabric.
McCall's 7591 View D can be worn day and/or night depending on the fabric you choose. To make your dress work, fabric must be soft and drapey.
I love this dress enough to recommend McCall's 7591 View D.
Pattern: McCall's 7591 View D
