New Look 6774 : A red embroidered maxi dress for me

New Look 6774 came together very easily and was a relief after my last fiasco with
I am actually shocked by how pretty it turned out and how quick it was to make.
The pattern is quite simple.

I added some crochet trim along the bodice and the ties to go with the crocheted hemline of this cotton voile I found in downtown LA.

The fabric had this lovely border embroidery and I quickly bought just enough yardage for this dress, thankfully.
I wish I could have bought more to make a dress for one of my girls too. You have to buy fabric when you find something you like when down there because you never know if you will see it again.
This fabric was only three dollars a yard!

I love the latin feel of this dress!
I would definitely recommend sewing this pattern.
I did make the bodice a little longer since the pattern is designed for a B cup which I’m not, but besides that, the pattern fit very well.
I cut it in a size 12.
I still need to do a little hand embroidery to match up the embroidery going up on center back seam.
