New Look 6071 - Green and Brown Dress

I've been wanting to get this pattern and fabric together for awhile now. The fabric is from my last trip to New York. I used the pattern (New Look 6071) one other time and knew that I'd like to try it again.

This is a very comfortable, easy-to-wear dress. It will be very cool on hot days. The cross-over detail on the front is interesting, but really isn't complicated to do. I was surprised how quickly I was able to finish this dress. The neckline is quite low, so I added the modesty panel.

This is a poly ITY jersey. It was wonderfully agreeable to work with. The neckline didn't stretch out of shape even though I didn't stabilize it with clear elastic.

I think I'll be wearing this dress a lot this summer!

  1. I love this pattern, and you've used a wonderful print! I think I want to make the sleeveless version too!

  2. I hadn't noticed that pattern before. Your dress is so pretty and as you say, perfect for summer.
