As much as I like fancy, heavy-duty fashionable piece, I love minimal everyday pieces. A true stylish wardrobe consist of pieces that work in every aspect of your lifestyle. This includes "throw-on-and-go" dresses that work with a variety of shoes and outerwear toppers. And this dress fits that bill. This is season is all about clingy, stretch, second-skin dressing. After a year of being in pajamas and yoga pants, I think most of us want something with the same effect, but a little more on the polished side.New Look 6210. And the fabric is Kristen Cut Sew Sweater Knit from Zelouf Fabrics in ivory.
First things first, the adjustments. I cut the size 16 and made my standard 1" FBA.
Pardon my wrinkles... sometimes I sit. I also made 1" swayback adjustment and a 2" full seat adjustment. A center back seam is the miracle that makes all of this possible.
I sewed this using my walking foot on my Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000. I set my stitch to zig zag 1.5mm wide x 2.5mm long. I used a ballpoint needle. And I finished my seams with my Janome AirThread 2000D Serger.
Since I'm probably taller than the average pattern model, I decided to raise my side slit by 2".
I finished the slit hems with a 5/8" hem. And I hemmed the garment at 1.5".
I love this dress so much. It's such a quick and easy sew that I see myself wearing multiple versions of this dress for the rest of hot weather season.
