I have made V8766 before. I made the strapless version in a black and white print. I love that version, but I have never worn it out of the house. I just don't go to a lot of events that would require a strapless dress. If we could reclassify going to work or the grocery store, I could say that I go to LOTS of those events.
The skirt is a half-circle skirt. The result is retro-esque without the miles of fabric that have made my past dresses so impractical for every day wear.
Now I am paranoid. Is it inappropriately pink? It is an odd dress to wear to work? Who knows. I am not sure I'll wear it to work again, but it is still a good holiday eat-fest dress and I liked this pattern. It is quick and simple. Only the neckline on the bodice is different from a sloper, but I like the simplicity.
