This one was made using New Look pattern 9065 (yes, again) and some gorgeous grid print crepe fabric from Remnant Kings. Stay tuned for shorts in the same material – hopefully!

So here’s my pattern review for New Look 9065…

It’s brilliant, buy it!

I’ve made this dress three times now, twice in polyester panama and once in a viscose print. It’s so easy to make and the fit is so flattering. The darts at the bust and in the back create that shape, but neither are too tricky to do. There’s a zip down the back which you can either do as an invisible zip or just normal, which is what I went for.

The green and pale blue versions are both in polyester panama, which I think makes them fairly smart – I hope so anyway, I wear the green version all the time for work! I absolutely love the colour of the pastel blue dress, but unfortunately I think its quite a summery shade so I haven’t had a chance to wear it recently.

I think this viscose print version is my favourite though.

Great for a night out, but just stick tights, boots and a baggy cardigan on with it and it works as a daytime look too.

So as you may have gathered, I highly recommend this pattern! It’s versatile, works with different fabrics and always makes a really flattering dress.

I have heard others say the sizings are a bit big on it, but I think it depends what you’re after. I cut my normal size and it was perfect.
