I came home with two New Look patterns (6349 and 6674). Both extremely similar in design, with one slightly more involved in it's construction. I just couldn't make a decision on which one to choose so grabbed them both! Deciding to start with the easier dress pattern of the pair, I cut out 6349 that very same day and there it sat, untouched for several weeks. Yesterday however, with a 37c day forecast, I woke up knowing that that was the day to get this little craft room lurker completed and into the wardrobe.
And completed it was!
In just over two hours!
This is a record for me, making a dress in one sitting. This is what happens when a person can't sleep and keeps waking up at uncivilized hours of the morning. A dress is stitched up and ready to wear before the rest of the family has even finished eating their weekend breakfast!
I do like an easy dress pattern...and this one most definitely was...
|New Look 6349|
I love, love, love the wrap tie that forms a belt at the back of the dress...a little on the vintage side, yes?
It's also comfy. Really, really comfy. Which is a good thing on a 37c day!
I am so happy with how straightforward (and quick!) it was to stitch up, I think I may make another!
Although I seriously doubt that we will have any more such warm days to wear it on....
..plus I really need to get my skates on and start on that second pattern that came home with me that day and cut into the fabric that keeps staring at me from the corner of the craft room..
