This weekend I made a muslin for a casual dolman sleeve dress from McCall pattern 6112. I wanted to make it out of a printed knit, but didn't want to waste the knit if the dress didn't fit or I didn't like the style. So I chose a black rayon knit to make the dress. This is actually the first time I made a muslin. (Most of the time I'm too lazy to make them!) But I wanted to make a muslin that I could use rather than just throw away.

I really like the way it turned out. It is super comfy and I could wear it around the house or out shopping. The only change I would make is to shorten the sleeves a little bit. Since the dress is plain, adding a belt or scarf around the waist would add some color and texture. The long necklace, as shown in the picture, can add some sparkle. I can't wait to make the printed knit dress!
