New Look 6071 - print and plain

I really got a lot of use out of the Christmas New Look 6071 dress. Black with gold sparkles is a little too much for the office though, so I'm making it again in a bold print with a 4.5" added to the drafted length and also in plain black, which I will hopefully cut a lot longer, to come below mid calf length.
The leftovers from the print should be enough for a little top as well if I am carefully with cutting out. I'll keep you posted!

So glad to hear that this new dress worked out well for you over the holidays. I have the pattern sitting on my sewing table at this very moment and will probably make up a sample and then bring it for a sewing retreat project at the end of the month. Thanks for the inspiration.

Jane, just bear in mind it comes out quite low cut at the front. I wore a cami under it.

This style does look flattering. I look forward to version #2:)
