Now with that out of the way, let's talk about New Look 6107. I stopped in at the fabric store yesterday to get some swimsuit elastic and a button for the beige cardigan. This stretch denim was calling my name and a meter ended up coming home with me. I've been wanting a casual summer skirt and I figured this fabric would fit the bill.
lapped zipper, but I think I prefer the look of a centred zipper.
newly acquired blue ponte knit that I think would look good with the colours in the skirt. I've got about 1 1/2 meters so I could make a 3/4 sleeve tee, but I already have blue tees in various sleeve lengths that would go with the skirt and I'm itching to try something completely different.
I'm thinking about using it to make view E (top row right side shown in brown) of New Look 6808. I know this pattern is for woven fabrics, but I think I could get away with making it in a ponte knit. I would change the bust darts to an eased dart like in my tee pattern, and I would eliminate the vertical darts and adjust at the side seams. I could probably even leave the side zip out to make it a pullover. And I think the ponte would be sturdy enough to carry off that collar. What do you think? Should I go for it?
