New Look 6291 Dress and Jumpsuit

This dress has been on my list of makes for at least 2 years. I finally got around to making it for an upcoming trip. It was super easy to make and it has pockets. I love a dress with pockets.

There are 2 pieces to the bodice, front and back, along with the elastic and neck tie. I really need to invest in a point turner for the neck tie, that would make it os much easier to turn it to the right side once the seam has been sewn.

 

There is a front and back piece to the skirt with the pockets (4 pieces, 2 for each side), elastic waistband, and the waist tie. 

 

I can thank my daughter for taking the photos of me wearing 99% of my garments. She has some mad skills behind the camera and this time she only rushed me twice. Love this kid.

And of course I forgot to wear the belt in the photos.

I cut this one in an extra small and remove 4 inches from the bottom. This dress can be worn with wedges or flats, I made sure to make it versatile that way. 

Bye for now, time to go Sew Something!!!
