Happy Valentine's Day, New Look 6171

New Look 6171

This little dress is so smart looking!  I love the "grown-up" look for my 9 year old.

The fabric is Timeless Treasures from Vogue Fabrics that I picked up at the Quilt Festival back in the fall.  It is a wonderful corduroy!  Lovely to work with and drapes well!

The pattern is a quick  and easy sew.  I followed most of the directions, except for inserting the elastic into the waistband before the skirt was added.  I know my skinny, little daughter was going to need the help of the elastic to make it fit well and I dislike sewing onto gathered elastic.....  So I finished the dress and left a small opening in the waistband to insert the elastic and try it on my little one.  Presto and it was finished!

This is a great dress for any geometric print fabric you have hidden in your stash and you can't decide what to do with it.....

Happy Valentine's Day!
