For my next project, I wanted a regular dress versus a maxi dress. I really liked the look of New Look 6020.

I decided on View B. I liked the princess seams down the middle and the cut in the front.

Since I am more wide rather than full (wide across, flat stomach, flat hips) and hourglass shape without the butt:) I always like to cut a tie belt or use a belt to help accentuate my waist.

I cut a size 14 for this. And again used an invisible zipper (I just like my zippers to be invisible) and found some brown store bought bias tape. I found some brown ribbon and some orange ribbon, but I didn’t end up using any of the ribbon.

Again, I found this fabric from Joann’s. It is a cotton fabric.  I just love the print.  I am very into color and prints.  To me the orange just stands out!!!

I didn’t do any fit adjustments to it.

It was actually very easy to put together.

I love how the front turned out with just the little arch.

I think next time I might stabilize the tie belt with just a little like stabilizer just to make it a little more stiff and to help it come from untying.


Here is my in the dress in June 2017 (it still fits!!!!, barley, lol).


Sorry about the lights. Yes, I have green in my hair.  Playing with color!  Did I say I love color!!!


Here is the inside of the dress. You can see the facing, this was very easy to put on.

Also, I did the bias binding around the armhole.





I just love this dress.

Honestly this is the first time I tried this dress on in 2 years, I didn’t think it would fit. Guess it does!!  The material just has a little slight stretch in it so it helps.

I didn’t make the purse. For some reason, I change my handbag about once a year.

Usually when my mother sees mine ripping, she will go buy me a new one.

I just can’t seem to part with the money for a purse, huh, don’t know why.

I love shows as you can tell!!

Until next time, Cheerio!
