|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.....
