Made a New Dress!

New Look Mock Knit Dress Pattern

I made a new dress last weekend. I love wrap dresses but being a bit curvy, I can’t always find one that doesn’t gape in the chest, so I decided I needed to make my own. For this one I used a pattern by New Look: U06301A Misses’ Mock Wrap Knit Dress Sewing Template. The pattern was easy to use and easy to match different sizes body parts (allowing it to be customized to ones curvy parts pretty simply). For fabric I went with a few soft knits from Fabricworm. All in all, I enjoyed making this pattern (it took about 2.5 hours, start to finish) and will use it again. Before you get started on a sewing pattern for knits, give this post a read through: How to Sew With Knit Fabrics: Sewing with Jersey 101. So, what do you think?
