New Look 6020 Dress

For my next project, I wanted a regular dress versus a maxi dress. I really liked the look of New Look 6020.

I decided on View B. I liked the princess seams down the middle and the cut in the front.

Since I am more wide rather than full (wide across, flat stomach, flat hips) and hourglass shape without the butt:) I always like to cut a tie belt or use a belt to help accentuate my waist.

I cut a size 14 for this. And again used an invisible zipper (I just like my zippers to be invisible) and found some brown store bought bias tape. I found some brown ribbon and some orange ribbon, but I didn’t end up using any of the ribbon.

Again, I found this fabric from Joann’s. It is a cotton fabric.  I just love the print.  I am very into color and prints.  To me the orange just stands out!!!

I didn’t do any fit adjustments to it.

It was actually very easy to put together.

I love how the front turned out with just the little arch.

I think next time I might stabilize the tie belt with just a little like stabilizer just to make it a little more stiff and to help it come from untying.

Here is my in the dress in June 2017 (it still fits!!!!, barley, lol).

Here is the inside of the dress. You can see the facing, this was very easy to put on.

Also, I did the bias binding around the armhole.

I just love this dress.

Honestly this is the first time I tried this dress on in 2 years, I didn’t think it would fit. Guess it does!!  The material just has a little slight stretch in it so it helps.

I didn’t make the purse. For some reason, I change my handbag about once a year.

Usually when my mother sees mine ripping, she will go buy me a new one.

I just can’t seem to part with the money for a purse, huh, don’t know why.

I love shows as you can tell!!

Until next time, Cheerio!
