DressPosted: July 25, 2010
I have spent today making a dress. I cut out all the pieces earlier in the week so I could get straight into the sewing this morning. The pattern is New Look 6824. The bodice is fully lined, I thought this would be really difficult, but it was actually easier than I was expecting and fun to see it coming together as the bodice. I have been sewing for years, but haven’t made any clothes from a pattern since I was a child with a lot of help from my mum, I really enjoyed making this dress and can’t wait to find some fabric for the next one. The pattern can be made up in lots of different ways so I will get a lot of use out of it.
I found the instructions really easy to follow and the dress came together really well. I decided to sew the zip in by hand so I could use different threads for the blue and white sections. I am really pleased with how this worked.
I have bought a red belt to add some colour to the outfit, I think it looks great with my red shoes as well.
