The Perfect Knit Dress, and Cowly top

Behold the (now out of print) McCalls 5752, the perfect knit dress, in a spotty knit from the stash. It was a bit gapey at the neckline, so I sewed a deeper seam where the bodice attaches at the midriff and it worked out fine. I think I'll make this again, in a plain fabric. I like the 40s-by-way-of-the-70s thing it has going on. No? Just me?

I had enough of this rayon knit left over from making this frock to make New Look 6901, the cowl t-shirt. I've decided that I'm going to use any left over knit frock fabric to make tops.. Most of my stash bins are frock leftovers. They'll have to be easy tops though or else I'll never do it. Can't get much easier than this, no finishing of the cowl neckline required.
