Kimono Belted Dress

I finally got around to sewing something for myself to wear. This is a dress and belt  made from New Look pattern # 6803. It came together quickly and was easy to adjust. I ended up taking in the side seam from the underarm to the waist to give it more definition but it still had to be able to slip over my head. This might not be the best style for someone short waisted like myself but oh well.

You'll have to excuse the squinting eyes. I wanted the pictures taken before church when I was in a non wrinkled state we were in a bit of a hurry.


  1. CUTE! It looks really good on you!

  2. That turned out great. I love the pleats on the top! So feminine and professional.

  3. Tres chic. I love the color combination.
