New Look 6922 now in aqua blue!

Ok, so I'm thinking about taking a long weekend to go to the beach. What color says beach more than aqua blue?

This time it took me 2.5 hours. I cut the 10 this time at the shoulder seam to bring everything up a bit; I wound up sewing that in a 3/8 seam so I could have cut the 12. Along the sides it was 14 grading to 16. I futzed a bit with the armholes--that is what took so long. Next time I will leave the armholes as-is.

I wore two different ribbons in the photos--they were cut to almost 2 yards in length.
Otherwise it's the same little black dress I made on Thursday night! And this helped me get over yesterday's cowl neck struggles (I think it does look ok after all).

I have no idea where all my time went today. I spent a lot of time staring at my stash and some time cleaning up my sewing room. I cut out another dress to make tmw, but it's not this one. I want to make this one again in brown. :)

  1. Cute! I think I have this one in my stash— didn't recognize it in the black version cause its harder to see the details in the photo. Will probably have to wait till I'm post-prego, though.

    I'm amazed at how fast you sew— wish I could get as much done!

  2. This is a simple and cute dress, I like both your versions.

  3. You are right! This does make a cute relaxed dress. I'll have to give it another try. I made the top once, but it turned out too big. I'll have to try a smaller size or do some adjusting to the pattern. I know you will like the cardigan too. Can't wait to see it.
