My little green dress...Newlook 6922

This is one of Newlook patterns that's been in my stash for some time. I usually try a simple pattern like this to jump start my sewing mojo, like I said in my last post, I have been having a little set back in my sewing since the death of my boiler iron, so to get back, I tried this lil dress. Did I mention I love this dress...lol. Everything from start to finish took less than 2 hours. Although I am yet to hem the sleeve and the bodice, but will do later.

Close-up to show the neck

Fabric: Moderate knit from Wal-Mart

Pattern Description: Just for Knits Tops, Pants and Dresses . I cut view C

Pattern Sizing:  10-22. I cut size 14 and tapered up to 18 from  hip down


Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?: Somehow, but mine is longer
Were the instructions easy to follow: Absolutely easy

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I made few alterations
(1) I lengthened the dress by 4"
(2)Lengthened the sleeve by 1"

(3)I did a swayback adjustment
(4)I slipstitched the neck facing because I didn't like how the topstitching looked so I removed it and hand sewn it.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing to dislike, 4 piece pattern, easy and stylish.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, a simple dress to make in less than 2 hrs.
 Conclusion: I love the pattern, and love the fabric as well,. The fabric has been in my stash since last year  and every time I ask myself why did I buy this fabric... Now, I know why I bought it...lol..
Have a lovely weekend everyone



Enjoy!!!!

  6. You call it simple... but that dress is Awesome... and the color is so rich. I have that pattern and never looked at the dress, just the cardigan. Now you got me thinking, especially after buying 10 yards of knit fabric Friday.
