New Look 6468



Hooray! I finished the dress. I'm very pleased with it. Outside photo is a little blurry so I took one in my sewing room.

Pattern: New Look 6468, View B. (Yeah, i know, the pattern shows a hot pink fabric, too. I didn't do that intentionally; I just loved the fabric I found - it happened to be pink!)

Fabric: Woven stretch embossed from JoAnn's. Black lace with ribbon trim. Now that I'm looking at the photo, a black tulle under skirt barely peeking out the bottom would be cute!


Close up of the bodice below. Obviously, I omitted the rick rack from the pattern and trimmed it a little differently.

Looks great on. The cut of that dress is perfect for you. And don't you have like a whole closet full of new shoes to chose from?

I like the black trim you used. A real winner!
