New Look 6429

I have been seeing this dress all over blogdom and everyone raves about how easy it is to sew and how flattering and comfortable it is. I have to agree. I finished it up last week but had to wait for my Spanx to arrive (love these things!!) I will make a long sleeve version of this for the fall. (Ignore my tired face and slouched posture. I hosted book club last night and my last guest left at 2 am but I still arrived at my office by 8:30 this morning!)

The details:
Pattern: - New Look 6429, View C
Fabric - Rayon Knit Jersey from Fabric.com (thanks to Debbie and my co-worker for helping me pick out this fabric)

I love that dress pattern and plan to make it soon out of some fabric from Gorgeous things. Your fabric is lovely and certainly looks wonderful on you so I may have to check it out, too.
Great job and great dress!

Boy, does that look nice on you! Excellent job (and choice of fabric, if I say so myself). Looks like a good one for business travel. One of those hang it in the shower to de-wrinkle.

Beautiful dress! I have seen it all over too and it looks great on everybody and every shape. I guess there is hope that it will look just as good on my body.

You look awesome in this dress! Isn't this a great dress pattern? I can't wait to make another one. And I love the fabric you choose...of course that might be because I'd been eyeing it for the same dress. Now I know how great it would have looked :-)
