Another bridesmaid dress!

New Look 6205 - Bridesmaid dress

New Look 6205 – Bridesmaid dress

Ok, so that wedding I wore the red lace dress and black bolero jacket to?  My daughter was the bridesmaid at this wedding!  So for the second time since August I found myself sewing yet another special dress for her to wear!

The bride chose the fabric, a beautiful teal and white border print by Moda from their Autumn Woods range.  Border prints open up lots of fun possibilities for print placement, but after playing around with the pattern pieces I decided to keep it simple and only have the border print at the skirt hem.  Although it could have looked pretty repeated at the waistband, or even at the neckline or armholes, I thought that the print would have maximum impact if just used at the hem.

I used New Look 6205 again for this dress, but this time I made the short sleeved version.  I didn’t bother with the skirt pattern because I didn’t want pleats in the dress – I just made a gathered skirt instead which worked better for the border print.

There’s not much else to say about this pattern that I haven’t said before, so I will just leave you with some more photos of the day.

      Thank you. It’s simple, but effective, I think.
