Newlook 6429 Revisited.... In a Leather-Look knit fabric

A great wardrobe staple Newlook 6429  the pattern is oop I think. I made my first version in 2009 here , another in 2010 here, and in 2011 here . All these dresses have gone to various homes (two to my sisters, and one to my niece), funny enough the owners still own and wear them .
Five years later I decided to make a new one for me in a leather-look, snake print, (army -green) knit fabric that I love so much and was a gem to sew, hopefully it remains mine for  some time.....





Stay tuned........
