By Wash N' Wear, I mean "go to" everyday clothes - easy to wear, easy to maintain. Easy to put on, wear, then throw in the wash. This dress is of a polyester knit, a stable jersey, bought from Mr. Kashi of Metro Textiles in New York, last autumn. The pattern is McCalls 5516. I made view C.
The hem is ruffled; I used a double stitched machine hem, which added the weight I wanted, while being neat and clean. The sleeves have a 'bubble' hem - easy to do by gathering and stitching the outer fabric onto an inner cylinder, then turning up.
