One pattern, four dresses! New Look 6068: Part One

New Look 6068

Ah, an old faithful pattern. This autumn I bought 4 different fabrics in the John Lewis sale, in a variety of autumnal colours. I made a set of four little dresses using my New Look 6068 pattern to wear to both work and play all autumn and winter long. It was fun and I felt like a fashion designer as with the similar shapes/features and colour pallet it sort of felt like as close to creating a 'collection' as I am ever likely to get!

Check back tomorrow for Part Two and my second dress in the series of four.
This first version of the dress features sleeve and neckline bound with bias binding and two contrasting patch pockets on the front of the skirt, with a tiny polka dot print.
The pockets are interfaced to give a lovely firm feel.I like the 60's feel to this one.
