New look 6615

Take 3 metre of Spotlight organic cotton and add New Look 6615 with New Look 6692… and you get a fun scalloped dress!

I used the scalloped neckline of N6615‘s gorgeous dress but added the tiered skirt of N6692. Since I skipped the dress sleeves which help hold up the bodice I added thin spaghetti straps. You can add the chunky straps of view A if you prefer.

The cotton has a beautiful floral print that is reminiscent of 70s designs with its orange, green and mulberry colours. I used 2.8m of fabric for this maxi all in.

This is the size 12. The bodice has a neat facing for the neckline and armholes with a separate piece for each size to get the perfect scallop positioning. And I thought about adding scallops to the N6692 skirt hem but decided against it.

I added an invisible zipper to finish the dress off. After all these years I can sew concealed zippers easily every time and if you’d like to know how, check out my video on the Simplicity UK YouTube channel.

It was a hot hot day at our friend’s Baptism so this dress was perfect for the weather but it would probably look great over a tshirt too.
