Upon reading reviews of New Look 6429 on patternreview, I was concerned because so many people had fitting issues with it. I usually never make a muslin when I am sewing jersey, because I just measure across bust on the pattern to get the finished size. Then I make the same size as my bust measurement. I decided to make a muslin and I did not have any sizing problems. I cut a size 10. I did not make any alterations to the size I cut. I sewed it straight from the pattern instructions. I serged the hem and the sleeve edges and turned them under and stitched them down. I always use a walking foot when I sew jersey because it feeds evenly through the sewing machine. I love this dress and it is a good addition to my church/work wardrobe.
I have long been in love with New Look 6429. When I saw this gorgeous ITY jersey on fashionfabricsclub.com, I new I would use it to make this dress. It made me think of Pucci fabric, which I love. Let me tell you that it gave me fits. It was terrible about rolling up on the edges. Anybody have any hints on how to deal with that? I hope this is not the norm with ITY fabrics. This is the first one I have ever sewn and they are so pretty that I want to sew more. I have one more sitting in my closet in my stash. However, if they all roll up that way, the next one may be my last. Here is a closeup of the fabric.
Here is the back view. I love the way it comes to a point in the back.
