New Look 6000

I fell in love with this pattern when I first saw it on MushyWear blogspot.   She also reviewed it on Pattern Review.  Yet, I am not going to make the side pleated version yet.  I am going to make the sheath style with front side and waist darts. I am going to use the collar and the 3/4 sleeves.

I wanted to use this pattern for the red and white houndstooth fabric that is a cotton blend from Vogue fabrics acquired earlier this year.  I want to save the pleated version for a solid color.  I have some red shoes I am dying to wear and have put off wearing them as I want to wear them first with this completed dress.  The shoes were my first purchase from Zappos!  Love that site and their service.

I spent most all day yesterday pin fitting the pattern and making adjustments.  I still was making more adjustments today.  After lunch I cut out the fabric and have the sewing/serger machines threaded and ready to go.

You can get a glimpse of the fabric and pattern in the top right hand WIP photo.



  1. I'm looking forward to seeing how this dress turns out. I love houndstooth and red, so together they have to fabulous.

  2. Oh, I love the dress pattern. I almost bought it last week. I don't know why I did not get it. It will be in my hands this week!
    Love the fabric. Can't wait to see the shoes! Zappos is the greatest.

  3. I loved this fabric when I got the Vogue samples for that season and I really wish I had bought some now! I think it will be perfect for that dress.

  4. I was happy to find out I am not the only one that makes a garment to go with a new pair of shoes.
    I love red houndstooth fabric. I think I have a few pieces in my stash.
