I was also struck by V1222, another Anne Klein pattern, but I'm unsure what the seaming on the bust would look like on someone who has a larger chest than the model. I do, however, love the vertical seaming around the waist and may purchase the pattern just to steal that feature for other projects.
I also initially loved V1219 by Donna Karen, but I think that dropped waist in the back wouldn't be doing me any favors. I love the structure of it though, and think it could be adorable for work in the summer.
I also like V1233, by Pamella Roland as a summer work dress, one that would actually work on my figure.
However, Pamella Roland's designs go from the sublime to the ridiculous with this monstrosity:
The ruffles, the belt, the stupid looking flower... it's just too much! And where would you ever wear something like this? Is your formal office at the bank throwing a fiesta? It's such a bizarre conglomeration of party dress and business attire that I can't wrap my head around it. And speaking of bizarre:
V8705 just makes me worry about tan lines. It reminds me of some sort of bondage wear. The only purpose I can see for this dress is to make it in a silver spandex and be some sort of futuristic space hooker for Halloween.
Everything else is a standard mix of non-descript floaty dresses, loose fitting seperates, and matronly suits that are far too mother-of-the-bride to be salvaged. But V1223 and V1233 will definitely be added to the constantly growing stash of "someday" patterns.
