New Look 6097
Pattern Description: Workroom from Project Runway, misses' belted knit dress with neckline and sleeve variations. New Look Just 4 Knits sewing pattern.
Sizing: 10 to 22
Likes/dislikes: I really liked the pockets, the pleats and the wrap dress look. Not dislikes.
Changes: I made View A but left the tabs off the sleeves and then tapered the sleeves so they are more slim fitting. I cut out a 12 but the dress was big, so I took it up on the sides and the fit was better.
Fabric: An ITY fabric
Conclusions: I have really like the look of the dress on all the reviews on Pattern Review. I am not sure this style of this dress on me. I do like it better with the cardigan and I need to find a good belt to complete the look.
I did enjoy finding some time to get back to my sewing machines.
Funny look on my face but the best picture of the dress.
