Christmas Dress: Resumed

Happily the pattern has been found and can be revealed as
New Look 6071.

I make the dress but with sleeves (though shortened a little to 3/4 length) and add 3.5 inches to the skirt length so it comes just below the knee. I also make a forward head wedge alteration which removes from the front neckline, and adds at the back.

I have a choice of bright red, dark red, burgundy and a spot print, and am planning the bright red for Christmas.
This will give me an alternate dress to my favourite black with gold sparkle I made last year and wore a lot.
(Imagine this only in RED!)
Excuse my very rough attempt at photoshopping, but it gives an idea.....

This is a great winter or summer dress choice.

Hmmm. I think this style would look becoming on me. Can't wait to see it! I'm sure it'll be lovely in red.

Thanks for the new sewing terms. I always need less back, that's for sure. Wonder what that's called.

Happy sewing!
