Pattern Review: New Look 6627 Three-Piece Ensemble

Threads #208, April/May
Article Image

New Look 6627

This three-piece ensemble features a slim fit with an eye-catching button detail down the top and skirt. The six-panel, waist-length top has a lined center-front panel, curved 1 1/2-inch-wide straps, and five-button closure. The midcalf-length pencil skirt has waist darts and a six-button closure that matches the top. The slim ankle-length pants have front and back waist darts, a left-side zipper closure, and sit at the natural waist. Opening edges and waistlines are finished with facings. Consider trimming the seam allowances at the neckline edge where the straps connect, as there are many layers of fabric that add bulk. Although all the pieces are designed for wovens, using fabrics with some stretch will add to their wearing comfort. Choose polished twill, lightweight denim, or linen suiting.

(Sized Misses’ 6–18 for busts 30.5–40 in. and hips 32.5–42 in.)

Style tip: Lengthen the top if you prefer a slight overlap at the waistline.
