After reading rave reviews on it I bought New Look 6429 , and some greeny stretch knit with black patterns over it.

Before I had a chance to get started on it though, I was given some black knit with gorgeous drape, and made a mock up of it in the short sleeved, no tie belt version;

The back isn't as full as it appears in the pic, I was just standing funny  Roll Eyes

It is the design features on this that I love, and they come together really easily. There are gathers up the side which flatter everyone:

As well as really simple, cute sleeves:

I like it in a plain fabric, becasue it shows the reallly nice construction.

In the patterned fabric I did long sleeves, cuffs and collar.

The colours (including my skin) have been washed out by the flash)

I was worried about the fabric being too loud for all the details, but I think now it looks fine.

I made these two dresses in as many days; there are not lots of complex instructions and pieces to go together, and it was probably one of the easiest dresses I have done.

As well as the gathering, the back goes down to a point and most of the fullness of the skirt is there.

I would really recommend this pattern, and even if it is your first time using knits it will give you great results.

That looks great! I love that pattern, and it looks great on you. I like this pattern because you get a great mock-wrap dress without those unfortunate events when the wind blows in other wrap dresses!

Thanks you guys.

I saw your dress on patternreview squirrellypoo, and it looked so good! I feel so flattered that you commented on mine...

That looks like a great pattern to have in a stash, to make one now and then to have on hand whenever you need "something nice".  I love the cuff on the long sleeve dress, long cuffs always look so nice.  Nice work!

The cuffs, collar, and belt look great on the 2nd dress! And I really love that fabric. I think I saw some that looked almost like that at Walmart for $1 a yard... hmmm, I think..

Great job! Cheesy

I love the simplicity of the solid colored dress! I can imagine it in a really simple but lux fabric that shows off the folds and accentuates the vintage look.

I love the way your dresses came out...I however have found this pattern to be extremely hard...maybe I'm not doing something right (my fabric has also been really difficult)

What problems have you had? Does your fabric keep growing, or is it something that we can help with?
