I made New Look 6962 view D without the tie! I used Raspberry chiffon that I had in my stash. Yummy. I gave it sheer sleeves and I altered the front bodice pieces to add a cm more bust coverage (so it was more modest). Don’t want to be flashing people now do I!
Want to hear a secret? The lining is actually red. Like strawberry red!
It took about 3 days, a few hours here and there so it wasn’t stressful to make.
And because I’d made the pattern before there was no surprises.
Crazily the lining cost more than the chiffon thanks to the wonderful world of Jack’s Fabrics. £1 /m for the chiffon, with £2.40/m for the lining.
