Pattern Review, New Look 6094

I really love this pattern and thought it would be very flattering on me.

Pattern Description: Misses' dress with sleeveless or cap-sleeved bodice and slim or flared and pleated skirt.

Pattern Sizing: 8 to 18

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the princess seams in the bodice but disliked the bodice fit.

Fabric Used: I used a cotton stretch sateen.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did necessarily alter or make any design changes but I made View A with the added details of View C. I did not put the stripes on the bottom of the dress as seen in View C.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, but I would make sure I paid close attention to the sizing of the bodice. I also recommend it to others.

Conclusion: This dress was very easy to make. I have issues with the fit in the bodice of most garments, its either too tight or too lose. But I will make this dress again with the full skirt with the sleeveless option for the summer.
