New Look 6657
I have been wanting a new Summer Robe for a while and have just got my hands on quite a few metres of this fabulous tropical cotton. I needed to try out this pattern from New Look. I felt that a red contrast would make the print pop. I am quite happy with the final result. I made the medium size, long length, short sleeve with pockets.
Front:

Side:

Back:

Pocket Detail:

I didn't worry about matching the pattern for the pockets as I kind of wanted to see them.

Thanks

Great job!  You're right, the red trim is just perfect with the gorgeous fabric.
