Faux Wrap Dress

I am always late to the pattern party. This New Look pattern was one of the Best of 2009 patterns on Pattern Review, and there are pages and pages of reviews to back it up! Well, after 8 years I figured I should see what all the fuss was about... 8 years ago. What can I say? Just say no to peer pressure!

The pattern is New Look 6429. I am positive it is OOP, as I see New Look has now recycled the pattern number for use on a newer design. This is a faux wrap dress with collar and sleeve variations. I used an uber soft black and white space dyed jersey that I picked up while on a trip to San Francisco. 

The pattern was super easy to sew. I did not make any size or design changes. I usually make one size smaller than recommended on all the Big Four patterns, but 2 sizes smaller for knit patterns as I find there's a little too much ease. I only did the one size smaller this time and although it's not huge, it could have been a little more fitted.

Overall, I am happy with this dress. It's great for my work-wear collection. I can now lay this pattern to rest. It's a great make but I don't see needing another one of these.
