New Look 6968
This is one of those patterns that experienced sewers describe as very simple to put together. For sewers like me, on the other hand, nothing is simple: despite the fact that I made a full muslin for this dress before starting on the real thing I still had to put in nearly every seam twice. I also experienced a crisis of faith near the end when my fabric choice seemed all wrong, the silhouette blah, the fit depressing. I persevered, however, on the theory that the only way to get better at something is to put in hours doing it, whether or not the outcome is any good. And in the end, it's ok. Also, it's my first ever invisible zipper!
