MMM 2015, Day 18: New Look 6123 faux wrap dress, in a taupe lightweight knit

Me-Made-May, day 18!

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. Here, I used a lightweight knit. I’m kinda neutral on how it turned out. It’s nice, but probably a little too flimsy for business casual at work.

I happened to have Monday off, so I wore it while pup and I played in the backyard together…
