This above-knee-length shift dress has a center-front neckline slit, a neck sash that ties into a bow, a semifitted bodice with an empire waist, bust darts, three-quarter-length sleeves with a slightly gathered sleeve cap and a contrast band at the sleeve hemline.
This is a great take on the traditional double-breasted peacoat, with two options for fit and details. There is a classic, fitted shape with front vertical darts, epaulets, lined patch pockets with flaps, and sleeve tabs.
This blouson-style cropped jacket has an 18-inch center-back length and is fully lined. It has wide-sweeping lapels, front princess seams, vertical welt pockets, optional shoulder epaulets, a back yoke, a set-in waistband, and sleeves gathered into narrow cuffs.

This close-fitting Anne Klein dress design has a jewel neckline, a buttoned center front, extended cap sleeves, skirt pockets with flaps, and flaps for mock chest pockets, and a self-fabric belt with a covered buckle.
Enjoy a jacket to wear for years to come. It is fitted, with a notched lapel with rounded edges, angled double-welt pockets, front and back shoulder princess seams, a center-back seam, a single-button closure, shaped two-piece sleeves, sleeve heads, and shoulder pads.
This V-neck dress replicates a vintage Butterick look. Details abound, including shoulder cutouts and custom shoulder pads. Sleeve options are one-piece tulip sleeves, three-quarter sleeves, or long sleeves with elbow darts and hem slits.
Try a quick, below-knee, pull-on knit skirt. This design is form-fitting, with negative ease. It consists of two panels joined by diagonal seams in front and in back, with edgestitching along the front seam and a front hemline slit.
