New Look - 6356

Pattern: New Look - 6356 (View D)
Size: 18
Fabric: 1.75M 45" Lawn Cotton (Harisons)

  • Barely enough fabric for the top.
  • Did a full bust adjustment
  • Lengthened the top by 2" 
  • Installed an invisible zipper and hook and eye
  • This is a semi-fitted garment with side slits and the waist has been intentionally taken in to 38" including ease.

My favourite hem treatment with bias binding

Somehow most instructions do not say to stitch the facing down but I prefer to do that so that it's not fiddly.  Used catch stitch so that it can have some flexibility

The bust darts are ironed upwards so as to minimise a full bust


  1. Two thumbs up.

  2. i so agree; a stitched down facing is very nice, making the garment easier to wear and care for.
    your work continues to inspire me~!

    take good care.
