House of Pinheiro sews NL6097

Pattern: New Look Workroom 6097  As mention before {DVF Dress} this jersey mock-wrap dress pattern has pockets, optional belt, short or 3/4 sleeves complete with cuff, tabs and button. 

Level:Simple

Fabric: The Blue jersey it's from Birmingham Rag market and the floral was from V&A meet up swap.
( * Updated: Thanks to The Amazing Taracat}

Size & alterations: Size 10 and a half circle skirt and cap sleeves.

Notions: Self made bias
Needle: Stretch needle size 11/75 Stitch selection and size: Stretch Stitch W:1.5/H:2.5 and overlocked seams

Sewn the same way including using the 'steam a seam' on the neckline and hem.
What did you particularly like or dislike about this pattern: This is very versatile dress. I love sewing this type of dresses as they are so comfortable to wear and so elegant. 

Conclusion: Best compliment of a patterns it's to be able to make many variations and they don't look the same. Bring on versions 3 , 4 etc

  1. This looks great on you! So nice to see with a half-circle skirt, a modification I was considering for this pattern.

    1. I think the original skirt is too tight and a loose shape is more flattering

  2. I love your dress, especially your colour choice. Looks like a great in-between season option.(So far) I've found New Look patterns the most versatile. The one's I've used have come with so many bodice, skirt and embellishing options that it would actually be HARD to make the same thing twice!

  18. Hi Rachel, I love how you have colour blocked this dress. Beautiful! The self made bias in the pattern adds a really smart look to the bodice.
