Happy Valentines Day! My intentions weren’t to finish this dress in time for a Valentine’s Day post, but I did, so I added the “Anti-Valentines” because I’m riding solo this year! Black and Blue, because duh, it’s black and blue!
The pattern is New Look 6123, view C without the arm flange. I made view B back in August.
I cut a straight 8, but used a 1/4″ seam allowance in the skirt. By the look and feel of the bodice, I need to take more in via the darts. I finished the neckline and armholes with black bias binding tape. Next time, I’ll shave off a bit of the neckline and front armhole.
I love the lightweight feel of the fabric! I found it at a little old fabric store with mostly fabrics for quilting. It’s definitely a poly cotton or rayon.
I wanted the V-cut to go lower but I ended up taking in an extra inch in the zipper, so it brought up the depth of the V. The zipper is just a regular black zip- all I had on hand! There’s also a vent back there too!
This is a great pattern for a bold print like this! I definitely have plans to make a few more!
