Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and Sewing Blog - Burgundy and Gold

 

Bold and bright in burgundy and gold. I made this quick and easy dress using New Look 6352 and a burgundy pique knit I purchased from my local Yardage Town fabric store. I used view B and added pockets to the side seams.   This pattern does not come with instructions for pockets, so I just used a pocket template I found online and printed out.  It was still quick and easy.This is a one hour pattern and adding the pockets only added an additional 15 minutes for me.  You know I love a dress with pockets and the addition was well worth it.  I cut this dress in the pattern size 14 as it is supposed to be very loose fitting. I plan on making this dress several more times in different colors and knits as it will probably be my daily uniform for running errands and hanging out with my boys this summer. It is just throw on and go. I decided to pair it with my yellow faux leather jacket from Zara, a recent purchase and my burgundy Pumas I’ve had for several months and turned out to be a perfect match.

Thank you for stopping by!
