Drama-free NL6000

Added Feb 26, 2012

Rotterdam, Nethe...






New Look’s 6000 a.k.a. Joan’s dress: Misses’ retro style dress with front, sleeve and neck variations. I love this dress so much I made it twice! It’s retro, but not costumey, and totally wearable in real life.

I skipped everything I could (cuff, collar, zipper, facings), so not only it was drama-free, but really quick to finish (under 6 hours from tracking to hemming).

As usual, more info on the blog

    this is the pattern I’ve been looking for! I bought a very very similar dress at target. maternity, but it’s ok because I’m chunky in the midsection, Aaaand on clearance! 75% off, so it was only like $15….I don’t really buy clothes unless it’s on clearance…lol

    Both dresses gave you a beautiful fit! I concur with you as well I love the pattern too much I also made 2 dresses out of the same pattern! haha. I am even thinking of making a third!. You can see mine here:



    I also noticed that you have made Simplicity 2282, the peplum dress. I made one too, we seem to have same preferences for dress patterns (hehe). you can see mine here


    I am also very inspired by your Pastille! Now i gotta make that pattern.

    Sorry I couldn’t leave comments on your blog so that’s why I am writing here.
