New Look 6067: Pleated dress in two lengths with sleeve and belt options. I was drawn to this pattern because of the pleating & the belt.
The garment went together easily and was able to finish most of the dress in one day.
Being that I used a double knit and the neckline is wide, I don't think a zipper was necessary, but I went with one anyway.
The fabric is a double knit with a black background with blue print, the bodice is not lined and serged all seams. For the neckline, I also serged & folded edge to the inside and straight stitched.
With the fabric being a print the pleats became lost in the dress, but I definitely like the lil shaping that it provides. However, the long sleeves did not work well with the dress and ended up shortening them. Also, I have not completed the belt and ended up grabbing one from my closest.
Major hair going on today...So glad I lengthened the pleats, if I hadn't they would've been sitting just below the belt adding humph to my stomach pouch.
Photographer playing with color enhancement... even tried patting my hair down...
My hair is totally big today... regardless of what I do..
By the time I got to work, I removed the belt and changed into shoe boots... but my hair is still big...lol
Conclusion: cute dress, comfortable and would definitely make it again.
