First Dress of 2013 ''New Look 6123'' in Grey

Added Jan 13, 2013

London, United K...






My first completed dress for 2013, this is a nice pattern easy to follow and offers a lot of variations I will be making one of each style! Great with some nice heels. I would recommend this pattern it’s really lovely.

Adjustments made:
Back darts increase in size to accommodate smaller back.
Inch or so off hip so it’s a bit more fitted in style

Material Notes

I used a blended stretch cotton/jersey in so there is some ease. I got it from the bargain bin ( again) it my local fabric store on the high st.
