I made New Look 6525 recently. It’s my 5th time using this pattern. The first time I used this pattern was to make a dress for my daughter. New Look 6525. I also made her a top using this pattern. I used this pattern again to make a top for myself. It was supposed to be a dress but I had difficulty attaching the gathers at the bottom. A good thing that came out of that sewing project was that I learned how to gather using a serger. What a difference! I made a top using this pattern at the beginning of this year as well. New Look 6525- A comfy at home top
This is a swing dress with a cowl neck and cuffed, gathered long sleeves. I used an ITY knit and it was my first time sewing with this type of fabric. I like the feel of it. It’s very soft but I must admit it’s difficult to sew with. Sewing with a serger helped alot but it was still pretty slippery. I had the most difficulty with the cowl neck.
I like the way it turned out.
I like the look of the gathered, cuffed sleeves. They were fun to sew together too.
