Two New Looks

I first saw this pattern on i heart fabric, I swear I find so many things on Erin's site haha..
It was a post about Clothing Inspiration, and she had matched popular clothing brands with Sewing patterns. Score!

I absolutely love Cue dresses, but find they are always too short for my liking.. and out of my (Husband's) price range.

So I decided to give New look 6124, View E a crack and see if it would end up looking even remotely like a bought dress..
I didn't make the peplum, because let's face it, I don't really need extra material in the hip department.

Firstly I made my muslin from a poplin cotton that was on special at $3 a mtr, another great thing about this dress is it only needs 2 mtr's of fabric!

I didn't really get a lot of pictures of the muslin because I wore it out that night.. You can kind of see it in this picture below :)
But I did the sleeves a little differently from the pattern.. I gathered them a little to give a ruched effect. I think it turned out ok :)

The actual intended fabric is a cotton sateen at $12 a mtr... I clearly haven't got the matching patterns etc down yet, but will try harder next time.. Let me know what you think :)



  1. Your so cute hehe!! I love it and glad you posted this up cause I was eyeing down your photos the other day and saw this in one of them and wondered what you did with the fabric. We must think alike with our fabric choices! The dress looks lovely on you and the patterns matching is fine. Very pretty!!

  2. I also have this fabric tucked away from Spotties Xmas sale - now I want to make a dress with it! Your dress looks super on you...well done...J

  3. Thanks:) was stoked when I found it, do you have any patterns lying around ? ;)
