New Look 6493 with Star Print fabric

And here is my finished version of New Look 6493 using a fun star print fabric! I am super happy with this one! This pattern actually went off without a hitch and I made it pretty quickly. I started cutting fabric on my birthday, May 9th and then finished it up on May 13th one evening.  I know you guys are mostly used to seeing me in super-bright colors, mod silhouettes, prints, etc. but I have always been someone who morphs quite a bit and this romper totally suits my current style which is a lot more blacks and greys than before.

But I really should be cutting like, a size 6 in ponte knits and an 8 in wovens from now on even though my measurements are far more like a 10.  I liked this dress because of how easily you could do colorblocking. And everyone knows how much I love colorblock!  This dress is actually an out of print pattern. The styling is a little more sophisticated than I normally opt for, but I still quite like the outcome of it.  Showing the little "peplum"
