New Look 6069

by Amy Thomas

January

This is New Look 6069 which is a lovely dress pattern with different sleeve and neckline variations, plus a cute handbag pattern.

I wanted to use viscose so the dress could transition from day to night. I’ll probably make it up in an evening fabric at some point too.

The viscose I chose is lovely and cool to the touch. It’s a medium weight and very drapey. It washed very well with no colour fading and minimal wrinkling!

I decided to line the skirt to avoid any sticking to tights so I used some black peachskin. I also used Vilene “softline” black lightweight interfacing which turns out is the bees knees. Oh and my invisible zipper? Went in like a flipping charm.

If I make this dress again I'll use a lighter coloured fabric to show off the lovely details a bit better. The yoke gathers and waist band are much clearer in person, but not very photographic. I would also add the sleeves; I cut and prepped the sleeves for this dress and sort of regret not adding them.
