But then earlier in the year I really needed a new dress. O.K. "need" is used loosely, but my wardrobe has been bugging me immensely. I ended up using some cool navy fabric from my stash last minute. Great textured knit fabric--the kind you can wad on the floor and leave for days and then there isn't a wrinkle in sight when you pick it up days later to wear it. LOVE that! Perfect dress to take when traveling--just shove it in the suitcase and go.
New Look 6802
View B sleeves with view C bodice.
Lengthened the pattern, as usual, about 9 inches to the hem. I wanted it a bit longer than just at the knee.
Adjusted the neckline to be higher and scooped instead of V-neck.
This is a super easy dress with some nice details. No zipper, just pull it over your head. I wore it first in January in Arizona for our Grandmother's funeral. So comfy and easy to wear for long periods of time. Paired it with my favorite red slingbacks and I love, love, love this dress!
