This is my first dress ever. I did it using New Look pattern 6340.
It is a trapeze shaped swing dress. I chose to do the sleeveless with notched neck and pockets version.
Overall it was easy to make or at least as easy as it can be for a beginner :-). I modified it by adding a braided pearl trim on the edge of the neck and pockets as I found the color of the fabric a bit too plain in the end. I also didn’t put the strap the pattern suggested. The fabric is on the firm side and it didn’t look good. I am very pleased with the result and it gave me the confidence to do future projects. Cheers!!!
