New Look 6729

My third time around and finally, I didn't mess up...lol

Pattern Description: 5 versions of misses knit tops
Pattern Sizing: 6-16.


Did it look like the photo on the pattern envelope ? Yes & No, I did Version D.


Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions for assembling the top was very easy. So easy that it is my 3rd time around with this pattern. The first time I used a sheer plaid and totally messed up the matching of the strips & plaids. The second time around I used a deep orange knit fabric and at the very end in my attempt to quickly iron it, I burned a hole in the blouse. Sheesh.


What did you particularly like about the pattern? You mean what do I love about this pattern? The sleeves are part of the bodice, which eliminates set in sleeves. Yipppeee!


Fabric Used: polyester/rayon /spandex blend in deep brown


Pattern Alterations made: The pattern piece for the back instructs you to do it in 2 pieces, but I opted to do the back as one piece, which eliminates a center back seam. The other thing that I did different was opting out of the side tie.


Would you sew it again? Oh boy would I… looking to do another one this weekend…lol
