Pattern review: New Look 6613

It's my best friend's wedding this weekend - hooray! Galumph has a brand new suit, and I've got a right old fancy frock to wear... but what about poor Tyger? She's gotta look spiffy too, especially since the bride is her godmother.

Since she's only going to the wedding itself, and not the reception, I decided that a simple and sweet summer dress would be just the thing. So I pulled out that favourite of ours, New Look 6613. This is the 3rd version of this I've made, and it's a wonderful pattern. It only took me 3 hours to make, from cut out to final hem, which is always a bonus. Teamed with the lacy cardigan I hope to finish this week, it will be dressy enough for this special occasion, but not so fancy that she can't wear it all summer long.

Especially with those crazy sparkly sandals!

    Very pretty. Love the fabric

  2. Pretty pretty dress. I would never choose this fabric in a store but on your girl it looks wonderful. I have so little imagination when it comes to fabrics ... Sigh.

  3. Does your daughter ever not have that gorgeous smile???
    Love the missing tooth too.

  4. Maryanne, you should see some of the outtake shots - the kid is a total ham!

    love the dress,
    the kid,
    the missing tooth,
    the lot. :)
