Luckily for me, I had made new look 6184 one before and the fitting issues had been sorted out. (for the record, one of my legs is tucked up on the rail behind me.) The fabric is a pretty fairly stiff stretch twill and this dress 'wants' a petticoat under it - but I don't have one.
I feel bigger in this dress than some of the others I have made recently and I think it's the combination of the stiffer fabric and the full skirt. I think I want to try the lower neckline and the slim skirt in the near future.
Do you think this would be weird with sleeves added? We can't wear sleeveless at the new job. Although I did wear this to work last Friday, I had a green shawl over my shoulders all day. I also brought a lavender cardi in case the shawl got annoying.
On another note - I spent the weekend (well, today) working on a pencil skirt pattern. It's almost done but the waistband and the hem. And I don't think I have anything to wear with it.
Finally - I spilled a glass on water on my laptop last weekend. It didn't survive, so until I get a new one - I have to borrow JB's and he doesn't always share well. So - I'll try to post at least one a week - but no promises and if I'm not commenting on your blog - well that's why. g
