This is what am talking about...............Newlook 6429

Thank you all for all your wonderful comments on my last post. That dress really made me look 10 years older and it's a goner, goner I nearly lost my mojo after making it, but fortunately got  it back from my TNT pattern.....................

Talking about the right dress... I love my Newlook 6429. This is my second time of making this dress and I am still very much in love with it...  I am (hopefully) going to make every

Here is the first one and you can read the review there as well. However, I did some quality sewing with this version:

(1) I finished  the armhole SA with seam binding
(2) I slipstitched the neck facing
(3)I bond the hem with lite steam- a-seam and this time used my coverstitch machine to finish it. 

Next time I will add about 1" to the sleeve if I have to make this long sleeve again ,I forgot to do the flat measurement of the sleeve before cutting the fabric so I had to do 1/4"  on the cuffs and armhole... it  looks pretty nice  on me and I love it............................

Here are some pictures for you...........................wink
