Pros for New Look 6000 - made it before, didn't get fit perfectly but can use what I learnt to get it better this time....and looks more like the shift dress shape of Megan's original.
Cons for New Look 6000 - although I was surprised at how much I liked my version for the Polka Dot Frock Fest, shift dresses aren't really me...I think I'd wear dress with a fuller skirt more.
Btw, I've already made the sleeves, in concertina pleated chiffon....so that's sorted.
Pros for McCalls 9461: easier shape for me to wear more often....probably, though the sleeves might cancel out 'regular wear' ;) And it's a proper 1968 pattern...and I'm trying to be braver and use more vintage patterns.
Cons for McCalls 9461: haven't made it before and I'll have to grade it up from a vintage size 16.....haven't got time for a muslin/toile (deadline for Mad Men 2 Sew Along is Monday 22nd), doesn't look accurate copy.
What do you think?
I honestly can't make my mind up. Think this as a mini-Sew Bossy Initiative, you telling me what to make ;)
Any helpful opinions welcomed!
