New Look 6729

 I've had this pattern for a number of years now and have always wanted to sew it up. I finished it and wore it to church on Sunday.  I originally planned to sew this top 2 weeks ago but had some mojo "depletion" issues so I sewed something else and put it on the back burner. I'm happy I picked it back up and finished it. I love the style of this pattern, it's definitely a keeper. It's simple but the front design makes for a cool effect. Unfortunately you can't really see the design lines due to my loud print. But I still think the top turned out cute.  Here's the review.......

 New Look 6729

Pattern Description:
Top with tie and overlapped bodice design. I made view B.
Pattern Sizing:
I cut the size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Front View: It's difficult to see the design lines in the top due to the print.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They couldn't be any easier!
Fabric and pattern. I made view B (pictured as black and white print on envelope)

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the overlapped bodice design and tie. I didn't like how low the neckline was so I ended up having to use a safety pin. Next time I sew it I will raise the neckline some.

Back View: The "Wee-One refused to let me take a picture by myself. I have no idea who taught her how to pose! I only know the basics. She always likes to get all fancy with hers LOL!!!

See what I mean about the posing!!!

Fabric Used:
Matte jersey with blue, gray, black circles on white background.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Closer View: All Smiles

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, plan to sew it in a solid color!
Great top, super stylish, and easy to sew. What more could you want:)

This is the coolest tree---most of it's roots are above ground and covered with moss!!! Isn't that neat:)

  14. Oh, cute! I love how your print tops turn out. I think that would be a challenge for me but they are lovely for you. Your daughter is so cute! My son loves to pose when I'm taking pictures too. He's quite the ham ...

  15. I made that top and found it was a bit low cut too. Still, you look amazing in your version. Great pics altogether BTW.

  16. The fabric is great. I love prints. It looks very nice on you. What a cutie your daughter is. Model in the making or seamstress?

  19. That top is very attractive on you. In addition to being easy to make, it looks like it's very comfortable and easy to care for as well. Bravo!

    How old is the little lady? I know you've already exposed her to the sewing bug. The sooner they are exposed to the thrill of making and wearing their own creations, the better.
