New Look 6000

May 5, 2014

Hello everyone, today I have to show you New Look 6000. I know this is a widely loved pattern by vintage enthusiasts because it has a great vintage flair, and I couldn’t agree with them more! I actually was surprised to see that the finished product fit me perfectly, knowing my previous experience with modern patterns. I used a bright purple gabardine. I would highly recommend this pattern to vintage¬†and modern sewers. My only dilemma with the pattern was the collar. It is not supposed to, but it curls into itself. Also, my button pulls on the fabric beneath it. I’m not sure, but that might be a button placement problem.

 Thanks for looking!

  1. I’ve just bought this pattern and some winter weight fabric. I’ve never made a winter dress before because I always wear pants in cold weather. Looking forward to making this one. Love your choice of colour.
