Today I made it back into to the sewing room to test a new pattern, New Look 6098. New Look 6098 includes a pattern for a knit top or dress with a low, narrow, V neckline, dolman sleeves, and a swishy full skirt. I made view A, the dress, in a size 10. I used a 4-way stretch rayon jersey from Fabric.com that I acquired a couple of years ago. When I ordered it, I thought I was buying a red colorway. When it arrived, I was disappointed to find out they had sent a rust and brown colorway. I have exchanged fabrics before, but I was too lazy to send this one back, so I stuck it in the stash. Since New Look 6098 was an untested pattern, I thought I would use the above mentioned fabric. That way if it didn't work out, I wouldn't be upset for having used a piece of fabric I adored. I have good news however. The dress turned out beautifully, but not without a lot of fit adjustments along the way!
