New Look 6802

Another finished project, entered in the Stash contest on PatternReview. And that's the problem with my stash.....there is alot of it, and half the time I can't remember where or when I purchased it! I know I bought this fabric a year or 2 ago, maybe from Gorgeous Fabrics?? I don't usually wear much red, tho this is more an orangey-red with brown accents. Funny thing about this fabric, it is actually the focus fabric on the pattern envelope: pure coincidence! I didn't need to make too many alterations to this pattern, and now I see why it is such a popular dress pattern. I did raise the v-neck by 1 inch tho. I plan on sewing this one again, that's for sure :-)

Shown with the required cardi for a Michigan winter:

This front twist is actually a separate bodice piece, easy-peasy:


  1. Very cute dress and it looks fantastic on you. Like it with the cardigan, too. Is it ever going to be spring?

  2. ok, i want one ;) and is that a new dress form??

  3. Found your blog from link on Sew Stitch Create. I am very impressed. I am not a garment maker and I am in awe when I see someone who can make something that is wearable--and so stylish!

  4. Wow, another cute dress! Very, very nice!
