Recently I was asked to do a tutorial on New Look 6206. I had made this dress as a Semi-Formal for my daughter last year. Here is a picture of the dress that I made her.
Pattern 1, Pattern 2, Pattern 3, Pattern 4, Pattern 5, Pattern 6, etc. Now that you get the picture of finding what style of pattern that you want, I'll start with this pattern since it is one that I have on hand and I've already ventured into before. On my daughter's dress I made changes to the skirt (fitted) and I shortened the skirt to fit her. With this tutorial I will be making the dress as it is in the pattern.
Rayon knit. It feels like cotton jersey, but it's soft and flowing which is something that I wanted for this particular dress.
To start, this is a pattern that has to be assembled in 3 parts, the bodice, then the skirt, and then join those 2 together. You can start with either the bodice or the skirt first, but I like to go with the hardest first,,,the bodice. Once all the pattern pieces are all cut out, notches, and markings are done you are ready to begin.
Thus far we have completed the bodice. In my next post I will be visiting Step 7, the possibility of embellishments and completing the skirt.
Thank you for joining me today. Until next time,
Lots of Love,
