New Look super and simple

I've been on hiatus from the blog for the first time since I started blogging.  All in all not much sewing in the last few months as I was recovering from an op, but still had a bit of a backlog of things to post.  

This dates back to August.  Another version of New Look 6068.  I was after something fast and simple for this particular material and remembered this pattern. 

Not much I can say about this simple dress. My previous versions have had the collars but this one I didn't even bother with an opening at the neckline as it was big enough to pull over my head.  The material is lovely to wear, soft and a nice drape.

I added this details to the sleeve.  It was a bit too boxy so I made a pleat and finished them off with a button.  I was originally going to wear it as a winter casual, but I think I'll get more wear out of it for work.  Wearing tights seems like such a long way away now with steamy summer weather upon us. Only 6 months until June........................
