To make a some what out of sort situation turn around... I decided that navy blue is a good color regardless to when you wear it and since the 4th was already gone, I've got to have something in blue.
To get over my "Blues", I went with New Look 6449.
Here's a look.
Pattern Description: Misses shirt dress and knit dress. Shirt dress has collar and pocket options. Knit tee shirt dress with sleeve options with/ without pockets.
Pattern Sizing: 8-20
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, The knit dress was exceptionally easy. The shirt dress would need a little more work.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The ease of this pattern makes it a great starter pattern and wardrobe builder.
Fabric Used: Knit dress- Cotton Jersey, Shirt dress- Cotton Blend.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I really didn't make any alterations, but I added belt loops to the sides. I would think this pattern is very true to size.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, and Yes.
Conclusion: This was an excellent pattern. I enjoyed the knit dress for its simplicity. I could sit down and make a million of these. This was one of those 1 hr from start to finish projects and I would love to have one in every color of the rainbow.
The shirt dress was a little more time consuming.
The instructions and illustrations were great. I absolutely love New Look patterns. They make wardrobe building easy.
I hope you enjoyed today's post. That's all for now and until next time,,,,,
Lots Of Love
