MMM 2015, Day 11: New Look 6123 faux wrap dress, in knit print

Me-Made-May, day 11!

Mondays in Me-Made-May are all about variations on New Look 6123, a lovely dress with options for a 1-piece or crossover bodice, and plain or side-gathered skirt, with an optional side flounce. I adapted the pattern for medium-stretch knits in order to stash-bust a bit. Today’s version is the faux wrap top, and skirt with side ruching:

Overall, I’m happy. I added 1.5″ length to the front and back bodice, and raised the heckling by 1″ (I don’t like showing too much cleave at work).

Final Thoughts:

Another comfy dress for work, I’m happy. I’ll be making another 2 of these as the pattern is very versatile…
