New "Love" Fabric

Okay, feast your eyes...this is the fabric that I hid on the bottom shelf of the 50% off table at High Fashion. In fact, I hid it so well it took me 10 minutes to find it again yesterday! The colors are divine in this 100% Rayon woven and the photo does not do it justice. I bought all they had...a scan 3-3/8 yards which is exactly what I need for V8620 with the long sleeves. It's a sign! Can't you picture it in this fabric with a wide belt? I love the collar on that dress but cannot remember what it is called? Portrait? I wish my mom was still here...she always knew those things...sniff...sniff... Anyway, the collar is cut on the bias which I think will set this print off very well like the corner I have turned down. It is so HOT here...I do get a little respite when I think of sewing some fab new clothes for the cooler weather ahead... Can anyone help me with the name of this type collar?

Vogue 8630...It says updated retro to me...

  1. I would call this type of collar a bit of a boat neck.... even though this one does show the collar bones... they usually don't have a "collar"... they just have the open neck line.
