This review was originally featured in Threads #159 (February/March 2012).

New Look 6045

With a simple change of accessories, these flattering dresses go elegantly from the office to an evening out. They have front and back darts, a center-back zipper and back hemline kick pleat. Unique details also include a cowl neckline, bias-cut bodice with a curved empire waist, and an optional bias-cut, knotlike front drape. Choose from two flattering sleeve options: elbow length with tiny vents at the underarm seam, or a self-lined cap also cut on the bias. The thorough instructions include lots of tips and clear illustrations.

(Sized Misses’ 8-18 for busts 31.5-40 in. and hips 33.5-42 in.)

Style Tip: Go casual with a simple jersey knit or soft linen, or dressy with shantung or laundered silk.
