New Look’s 6000 a.k.a. Joan’s dress: Misses’ retro style dress with front, sleeve and neck variations. I love this dress so much I made it twice! It’s retro, but not costumey, and totally wearable in real life.
I skipped everything I could (cuff, collar, zipper, facings), so not only it was drama-free, but really quick to finish (under 6 hours from tracking to hemming).
