Stitches Potpourri

13 Designs Total

New Look 6514 x200For these designs I selected the pattern New Look 6514. I wanted to  make the long flowing vest out of rayon challis fabric from my stash.

The white one displayed on the pattern is actually a striped fabric yoke. But I had in mind to create decorative stitches going up and down at the bottom of the bodice.

When I put the vest together it was much heavier than I wanted. The rayon challis drapes pretty and is lightweight. Maybe it was the total amount of the fabric that made it feel heavy. Perhaps a cotton gauze would be better.

I decided instead to make a dress. It makes a pretty jumper and a cool summer dress.
