Dress Idea

I have some 2 way stretch black knit with gold sparkles. It's very polyester in content but really rather tasteful. (Some sparkle fabrics are tasteful, some are blingy, this is tasteful).
I think it is going to be a dress from New Look 6071 with sleeves. I've sucessfully altered a few New Look patterns to deal with my forward head so I think it quite doable, as it even has the back neck seam already.
The sparkles make it too much for work, but it could be great for those Christmas parties. And being poly should wash and dry very easily ready for the next event!
I imagine it styled with pearls and velvet evening knee boots, red nails and lips.

This sounds like a great idea for those holiday parties you'll be attending. The silhouette and neckline of the dress are very becoming, and I love the idea of red nails!

I'm looking forward to seeing this made up. I think that dress will look great on your figure.

That sounds fabulous. Its a lovely pattern and will suit you well. Even better, if you wanted more mileage from it next year, you could chop it into a top and people will think you have a completely new garment. :)
