New Look 6676- Pattern Review

Garment #5 in the Pattern Stash Contest at Pattern Review.

This pattern is for a simple sun dress in five different versions. I made view C, the one shown on the model.

I used a cotton print from Joann Fabric. I fell in love with the design of the fabric and spent a little more than I probably would for cotton fabric. I spent $21 on fabric, got a zipper, and used ribbon from my stash for the decorative detail along the neckline.

This is another super easy pattern. I spent about 3 hours putting this one together. I had a little difficulty getting the straps exactly right. They are gathered at the ends and then stitched in place. If you look very closely you can see that they are not identical... or am I just freaking out?

I made a size 14- one size smaller than recommended. And I shortened the length by about 2 inches.

Overall, I am happy with the results. I will probably pair this one with a white cardigan for an outfit. We will be going to Florida to visit the in-laws in a couple of months and this one will be great for the Florida climate.
