Hey everyone!! Happy Hump day!! I hope your week has been great so far!! I'm currently not feeling 100% but I'm believing I'll be feeling better soon!! Who knew watching another child on top of your 4 would completely exhaust you?!! They won!!!! LOL! With school starting back up this week, I plan to get back on my schedule and blogging regularly! I have a couple projects finished that are just waiting to be photographed. So to get things back going, today is all of New Look 6512.
This pattern was a MUST buy for me when I saw it!! I love the views on this pattern especially the ones the model was wearing for the pattern cover! So cute!! I decided to go with View A, View D straps and View C split sleeves. Y'all know I love split sleeves!!
For size, I cut the size L, but I really wish I would've went down to a M. I like it, don't get me wrong but it's pretty loose and it kinda reminds me of this Simplicity pattern. I could've eliminated some of the extra fabric by going down a size. Fabric for this dress is a 1" Gingham from fabric.com. Below is my review...
NEW LOOK 6512 PATTERN REVIEW:
Pattern Description: Misses Dresses and Tops in Two Lengths with Sleeve Variations
Pattern Sizing: I cut the L.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did!!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. I didn't have any problems with the instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that its a simple dress with cute options like the bow-tie in the back, split sleeve with ties, top, tunic, dress! Its a really cute spring/summer pattern.
Fabric Used: Gingham, options
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No alterations, but I did play around with the views, and by it being such a loose fitting dress, I wish I would've cut a size smaller.
Would you sew it again? Yes, I could see myself making this again next summer!!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Hope you enjoy the rest of your week, and I'll talk to you in the next post!!
