New Look 6000 Wool Dress

by - 13:07

I’m not a big fan of layering, which makes my winter style quite simple - extremely warm coat and regular clothes underneath. I can wear an occasional cardigan, but it’s not very common. But some days it can be too cold to wear thin poplins or suitings. That’s when a proper thick wool dress is exactly what I need.

As soon as I saw check check wool coating fabric on Minerva I knew I have to sew a dress out of it. It might sound strange since this fabric is listed as a coating one. But the picture shows a good drape and thickness of the material that made me confident in my plans. It’s 100% wool which is the best choice for the garment that will be fantastically cozy and warm, yet perfectly breathable.
My expectation was right and this fabric was the right choice for the dress. It’s thick enough to be warm and to be worn with no lining.

My dress is very tight and the fabric doesn’t pull, it stretches perfectly where it needs to stretch, creating a nice silhouette.

This pattern has a surprisingly good fit and no alterations were needed. Instructions were quite clear too, but it’s such a straightforward pattern that there was no need for their guidance. I finished my seam with some cotton bias tape to give my dress a clean finish and make the inside look as pretty as the outside. I can’t wait for winter, gingerbread coffee, Christmas baking and a chance to wear my new wool dress!
