Geometric-Print Sheath Dress

I love sheath dresses as they are so timeless and classic.

I found amazing geometric blue-and-white print and immediately saw a sheath dress! When I found the New Look 6023 pattern I loved the sleek lines and simplicity. I particularly liked the defined waistline.

However, as I studied the differences between the look on the model and the illustrations I felt that I would need to raise the waistline in order to achieve the early style that I was going for as opposed to a later drop waited look. I also fully lined the dress to negate the need for a slip and re-used a belt buckle!

  • Very nice. Sheaths are very classic and I like how you defined your waist with a belt on this one!
