Newlook 6123

This is a bit scary……my first post on the Monthly Stitch

Here’s my new dress form (Gertrude) modelling Newlook 6123:

I originally made this as a toile in a 100% cotton fabric I bought at Boyes in Scarborough whilst on holiday. It turned out much better than I thought it would so I’m now on the look out for a wide red belt (will probably have to make one) and some red pumps. I don’t think I’ll be wearing it for a while – the cottons more of a summer weight and it’s not dressy enough for night time. 

I’ll be making this again soon (hopefully before the end of Frocktober) in a stretch cotton sateen leopard print. 

There’s a little more to read on my blog Thimberlina.

Happy sewing Ladies (and Gents???), I’m loving looking at all your amazing frocks this month!

  1. I love this dress… so much I immediately had to look online for the pattern (luckily I checked my stash before I actually bought it, as I already own it!). Promise you’ll show us a pic when you find the shoes – and I look forward to the leopard print version


    • I certainly will! I’ve been to topstitch in Brighouse today and found a small red buckle which is the right shade if I make a belt.
      Which version are you thinking of making??
      Have you seen the leather bag I’ve just made? The fabric I lined it with was originally bought to go with this pattern back in June. I WILL make it one day! (Promise to self!!) especially as I now have a matching bag! ✂️😀✂️


  2. Yes, I’ll be searching the shops for the right colour red – I’m sure I’ll pick some up in the sales as there can’t be a big demand for red shoes 👠👠👠👠👠👠
