A Tale of Two Dresses, and, a Poll

“It was the best of times, it was the”…well, really, it is the best of times when the thing occupying your mind space is which of two adorable dresses to make.

And these are my fabrics.


The question is: which fabric for which dress?


The plan for the New Look with the full skirt was always the polka dot BUT now I think I want to make the slim skirt, high neckline. Version C. Wouldn’t it look great in the modern black and white geometric print?


I love the Cambie slimmer skirt version because it still has some fullness BUT would it be too sweet in the polka dot print? The Cambie would look great in the black and white too.

So, a poll:

“It is a far, far better thing that I sew than I have ever sewn.”

  1. I’m reading your post wearing my blue and white polka dot slim skirted Cambie, which I think looks great ( and definitely not too sweet ). And I’ve had some really great comments about it too. So I’d definitely vote to make the Cambie in the polka dot.

  2. I’m with everyone else – polka dot cambie and geometric New Look. I really love version C of the new look pattern though, it will look great whichever fabric you choose.

  3. I think we’ve had this conversation before but I think I have a similar geometric print. So whatever you do with that, I’d like to see how it turns out. And everything is good in a polka dot (as I wear black with white polka dots at the moment).
