I finally finished M6560! I expected to be really excited by this pattern, both during sewing and once it was completed. The finished fit, even tweaked leaves a lot to be desired. It might not look it, but it’s REALLY low cut. Low Cut enough to where I would have to worry about some serious wardrobe malfunctions (read: nipple slips all day you guys). I don’t think the X back does any favors for my line backer shoulders either. I had some neckline gaping issues where the straps start coming up from the bodice, which would only add to the nip slip danger. The zipper seemed really long, and I was right. If I completely unzip the dress it’s pretty much impossible for me to zip by myself once it’s on.

The pattern was easy enough to assemble though. I didn’t like how the facing wasn’t finished at all. It’s just pressed up, which is kind of annoying and makes it have a tendency to roll up over the neckline. ​Mind you the facing is under stitched, but it doesn’t seem to do much. I made view b, and ended up adding a ruffle because it seemed weirdly short, as I told you guys a few posts ago. Also the way the top is constructed, it squishes your boobs together in a really unflattering uni boob way. They look pretty good from the front, but from the side there’s like no profile, and I’m pretty well endowed.

​While this pattern strives for simple, it really sacrifices that with the fit. I have a feeling this will probably be worn more to the pool over my bathing suit than out to dinner. It was nice to actually get a project done though!

I don’t think I’ll attempt a resew of this. It might work better for someone else though. For now the patterns going in the fail box.
