DIY--New Look 6122--View C

DIY -Halter Maxi Dress - New Look 6122
View C

I haven't posted in awhile!! I have been sooo busy lately with trying to work at my first job and run my home business.  I wanted to share this summer dress that I made for myself and for a Boutique Store.

I'm using my iPhone to do this post so hopefully it comes out as nice as if I was to do this on my computer at home.

I will admit...New Look patterns and I are not really good friends. I normally have a little trouble with them compared to other patterns. I don't know why that is, it just is. I decided to give this a try anyway!

I bought this fabric when I attended the Sewing and Quilting Expo in Massachusetts this past April 2015. I look forward to that trip every year!! It was purchased from the Vogue Fabrics vendor. I purchased 8 yards of this beautiful stretch fabric at $4.99 a yard! I knew I was going to be making more than one.

I did not take as many pictures during the sewing process as I normally do. This pattern was pretty straight forward.

I think once the bodice was complete everything else was a piece of cake. There is some light weight interfacing at the bottom of the bodice to give it some stability to hold on to the long skirt that will be added.  Do you see that little pink sticker on my right which is your left?? I find this easier for me when it comes to marking the right side of fabric when it becomes too involved with steps. It works for may work for you.

This is the picture I took when I first completed it. It's very light weight and feels great against the body. I love how it ties around the neck and around the waist!

This is a picture of one of the customers that bought my dress from a Boutique store that I have partnered up with. The store is Signature for Women. This is the first dress I have made for the store.

This is me today rocking the dress. I have worn it a few times. When I wear it to work at the hospital, patients and co-workers give endless compliments! It has quickly become one of my favorites!

Until Next Time
