New Look 6838

Pattern Description: Knit tops and pants

Pattern Sizing:


Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow?I read them,but I did not follow them. Wendy Mullins book Sew U Home Stretch was a great help.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like the easy to sew nature and the shape of this boatneck shell. I suggest wearing this with a clear bra strap because the boat neck will show your bra straps.

Fabric Used:Ivory cotton lycra knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:No changes.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?As for now no, but maybe in the future. I highly recommend this for beginners.

Conclusion: A great shell to wear under jackets!
