Easy 2 hour dress New Look 6750 stretch fabric casual dresses and stash busting

I oiled my overlock machine, dove into my fabric stash and made three dresses from my remnants. All are view B from New Look 6750.

Dress 2 and 3 have twin needle stitched hems. Dress 3 is my favourite to wear, the others are very figure hugging on me and I am just not used to it.

Dress no. 1 - View B, cotton blend fabric with little stretch,
made as per pattern instructions

Dress no.2 - View B
a drapey knit by John Kaldor fabrics.

Dress no.3 - View B, a cotton knit.
This time I removed the shaping
at the waist by ruling straight from the underarm to the hip.
It is cool dress for hot days.

Two colour twin needle stitching on dress 3.

This is a classic easy to wear dress. The BurdaStyle range of dressmaking books are another source of classic patterns and are available with free postage from the Book Depository.
