Sf Bay Area, Cal...
A warmer holiday party dress with a draped skirt and asymmetric neckline. And pockets.
Edit: for those interested, I drafted this from my personal sloper, taking the sleeves from a commercial knit dress pattern (since I never quite got those right). I then draped the skirt on my dress form. This being my first time really working with a knit, I ran into all sorts of issues where the waist was all droopy and in the wrong spot, requiring serious reworking of the pattern.
