New Look 6560

New Look 6560 with fabric to match pattern envelope


My new wrap top and I think I have found a wrap top I like!



The pattern is New Look 6590 and when I posted it on my Instagram feed, many positive comments on how much they like this pattern.  As you can see in this photo, I do need to adjust my snap placement, it looks too forced.

I added one inch at the lengthen/shorten line but I do think I might add 1-2 inches at the bottom.  It is great with my high waisted pants but anything lower not so good.  

One other change I had was to add more length to the belt, I just didn't have enough length to make a nice bow.  I added about 8".

I bought this fabric last year from Mood Fabrics, it is sold out but look it is just like the pattern envelope!

from Simplicity site



So I had to try my hand at pose like the pattern envelope!

This pattern is really very easy to sew and it didn't take much time, just check the length and see if it works for you.  One of the most common comments on the Instagram post was "it runs short"

  1. Have you tried Peggy Sager's line of patterns? She has some great designs and I think you would enjoy her techniques. Her wrap top is very nice, with no gaping. Your top (which is very nice) reminded me of Peggy's which I made years ago. I should dig it out and make it again.
