Hope you're not sick of this pattern yet! I'm not sure if anyone has actually ever said that good things come in threes, but when it comes to New Look 6808, it holds true for me. I've made this bad boy up two times already and I really love every version. And when you have a good thing, why give it up? I had avoided this particular view, with the adorable collar, only because I was worried that it would look too precious on me. I'm glad I decided to give it a chance because it definitely gives off a nice vintage vibe that I dig.
Honestly, I've made this pattern so many times there really isn't anything new to say. I cut a sz 12 again. This time around the fabric I used has a bit of stretch to it so I had to take in the SA on the side to accomade that.

I omitted the zipper again. Sure, I have to squish the girls just a bit when I put it on....but it's not too difficult to get in and out of without it.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, this pattern is really so versatile. It makes up well in a bunch of different fabrics and it goes well with just about anything. I'm thinking I need to make up a bunch in solid colors.
I didn't get a good pic of it, but the plaid lines up real well. go me.
The construction of the collar went well. It was fiddly and irritating, as collars can be, but all in all, it was smooth sailing. So there you have it. My third, and most likely not my last New Look 6808.
There's so much that I need to get to, that I'm hoping I can post about soon. I've got blog awards, #sewingdares and giveaways to share with you and I promise I will attend to this business sooner rather than later.
Also, if anyone's interested I can give a small recap/review of my short trip to NYC and The Airborne Toxic Event concert. I know this is primarily a sewing blog, but if there's interest in that kind of stuff, I'd love to talk about it. Let me know, guys. :)
