New Look 6497

I picked up New Look 6497 because I thought the bodice lines looked interesting.

I had fun with the fabric on this dress but I was too anxious about the fact that all my dresses are too tight to fit me lately and I got overzealous and made it way too big.

For the inside of the bodice I did the reverse.

I also used the yellow accent fabric on the back strap detail.

I sort of lukewarm on this dress. I think the straps are just a bit too wide to be flattering and it needs to be taken in but I do like the fabric combination so perhaps I will warm up to it.
