Sheath dresses have been so prevalent in fashion lately and I've really been wanting to jump on the bandwagon. I recalled that I had this pattern in my stash for some while now. I remembered that the collar gave the dress a very retro, 1960's feel to it... a la Jackie. Even my 11 year old commented that all was missing was one of those "little hats" (a pillbox hat), LOL.
My favorite part of the dress is the collar. It's cut on the bias. After I attached, I didn't press it down. I wanted to insure that it would be an authentic "rolled neck".
Overall, this is a great pattern and a great style. I recommend this one!
