I needed lounge wear and easy to put on clothing for the foot surgery I had back in January. Dr. said I would be down for 6 weeks with no pressure on the foot. I am going into week 3 and he was right. So before my surgery I made a few pairs of Pajamas pants with wide bottoms to fit over my cast and this this piece. McCall’s 7061 Misses’ Dress View B, I liked the hooded version to add more warmth, as I am always cold.
Well once I tried it on and added my boots to it, I thought this could be worn as an outfit and not just lounge wear. It’s perfect to wear now and I wouldn’t have to worry about getting it over my pink fancy cast and it is long enough where I wouldn’t have worry if I was showing too much when riding my scooter when I need to go out.
I was happy with the length and how this one turned out, but not sure if I want or need another hooded dress in the fleece material. If I were to make it again, I would use a little bit lighter fabric, this one is heavy and will keep me warm for sure.
