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.
A fabric close-up:
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!
