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).
Sorry about the lights. Yes, I have green in my hair. Playing with color! Did I say I love color!!!
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!
