Pattern Review: New Look 6261 Misses’ Dresses

Threads magazine - 176 - Dec. 14/ Jan. 2015

This review was originally featured in Threads #176 (December 2014/January 2015).

New Look 6261

These simple, unlined, knee-length dresses feature a center-back invisible zipper, bust darts, contour darts at the front and back waistline, and a short slit at the back hemline. Sleeve options include: sleeveless, short, or elbow length. Both views offer a round or V-neckline and an optional lace overlay. The lace overlay is basted to each dress section and then treated as one layer. There are two optional waist treatments. The first option consists of two topstitched fabric bands that cross in front and attach at the side seams. Alternatively, appliqué rows of ribbon at the front and back waist. Make this dress in two-ply silk, charmeuse, crepe back satin, printed chiffon, georgette, or wool jersey for all but the woven/lace combination.

(Sized Misses’ 8-18 for busts 31.5-40 in. and hips 33.5-42 in.)
