OOTD w/ New Look 6697

Feeling black & white all over and wore my New Look 6697


Pictures started outside, but baby its cold out there...




Opted to pair the dress with this circle cardigan instead of a vest.   This cardigan has always been paired with slacks.  Then one morning...


experiencing one of those I don't have anything to wear mode, settled on a dress, and since the circle cardigan was right there settled for it instead of one of my classic cardigans.  Can I say, I now have renewed love for it.  I realized that its a better pairing with my dresses than the classic cardigan.  The hemlines on my classic cardigans are straight and when worn with dresses, it lends itself to the old faithful Mrs. Doubtfire look.





Not this one....  love it.  I have another one in brown, but want more... so now I am on the hunt for them.



Until then......
Have a Great Day Every one.

Hello Sheila, Loving your dress with the faux leather elements. I am having a ball myself using the faux leather and faux fur this season. The rounded cardigan is definitely figure flattering and gives your dress that extra something.

Sheila said...

Hi Necie, Thank you. I would love to incorporate more faux leather in other garments. If only I could stay focused.

Hi Sheila. I really like your circle cardigan, is it a self-drafted pattern?

Sheila said...

Hi Tracey and Thank you. I purchased the circle cardigan a few years ago from the Loft. I stopped in Sears this week and they had a few, but did not work for me in that they were too long give or take 26-27" long. I am only 5'3" and needed it at 23" in length.

I checked my pattern stash and contemplating using Simplicity 1761 (from the Khaliah Ali pattern collection.

When I first looked at the picture, I thought you added cuffs to the bottom of the cardigan. Now I realize that the cardigan's sleeves are shorter and the dress' sleeves are longer than the cardigan. I LOVE this!! The little 'peek' of houndstooth is a wonderful surprise. I have got to make this New Look pattern!

Sheila said...

Thanks L. The pattern is my go to for a simple dress.
