I LOVE this pattern.
As you can see, I’ve made it a lot. Definitely got my money’s worth out of this one!
This pattern is so easy to make and such a great shape. As always with New Look patterns the instructions are clear and easy to follow. I’d highly recommend this for anyone, beginner or not, as it makes such a nice dress!
I’ve made it in polycotton (the pink flowery print), jersey (the last two photos) and polyester crepe (the first dress). Although it did work in the jersey fabric it was better in the other two non-stretch materials.
I’ve made both versions, with and without sleeves, and dresses for casual, going out and work wear. This pattern is so versatile!
It features two lots of darts at the bust which makes the bodice fitted, and box pleats in the skirt. There is a zip down the back that you choose to be invisible or just normal, so it’s a really simple but effective pattern.
I’m not quite done with it yet – I’d like to try view E, the sleeveless variation with a sheer panel too. Probably won’t bother with the tie belt though as its a bit too fussy for my taste.
