New Look 6216 – Girl’s Dress

Pattern Description: nl6216a
Girls t-shirt dresses with regular or drop waist, long or short skirt, short sleeved or tank top, and optional sailor collar.

Pattern Sizing:
Girls 3-8. The sizes match the dimensions on the back of the envelope.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Pretty much. I made a combination that isn’t pictured: short sleeves, regular waist, long skirt, no sailor collar.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Liked: simple, so you can whip them out.

Disliked: the facing on the neckline. I just don’t like facings. There wasn’t anything difficult about it.

Fabric Used:
I used a nice cotton double knit.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
The pattern calls for a woven fabric, but I used knit. Instead of hemming the sleeves, I used a rolled hem with a decorative multicolored thread. I omitted the ties.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might sew it again, if DD gives up the dress strike.

It’s OOP, but if you can find it or a similar one by New Look, I highly recommend it.

Simple pattern gives cute results.
