I have this mild obsession with sheath dresses. Not only are they flattering, but they are incredibly sexy. They form a fabulous partnership with my late 1950's/early 1960's obsession. It's one of those styles that you can repeat, but by changing the fabric, collar, or sleeve, you have a totally new look. My sheath dress collection is growing and two more are in the works for this winter!
This dress was sewn using New Look's 6910, view C. I made a couple of changes; added the fold over collar, and omitted the belt. I love this pattern because it whips together in no time. The only downside is I had to make changes to have it fit better. The back was way too wide and there was extra fabric in the shoulders. I also make the neckline lower; high necklines make me feel like I don't have boobs. Although I do want this Joanie dress.
