New Look 6110 - Spring Top Sew Along Entry!!!

Monday, April 09, 2012


I finally got my first ever shirt done!!  I ran home from work in a frenzy to get it done before the sun went down so I could get some pictures in it outside on our deck.  My husband had no clue that when I began sewing he would become a photographer.

I used New Look 6110.  I thought it looked easy enough for my first try.  This is a great pattern for a beginner.  Easy to understand and can be completed in a day.  The only problems I had was with the gathering.  I don't know why I can't get the hang of gathering.  I'm always pulling to hard breaking my thread.  For a quick and easy way to gather that saved me and won't break your thread look here.

How cute it is! I just love the fabric print.


I'm so proud of myself! I even did a french seam on the side seams.  I think it's a pretty good fit.  It even has a belt but I like it better without.  I'm entering this in the Made By Rae Spring Top Sewalong.


What shall I create next???

  3. Pretty :) You know, I think loose fitting stuff is great for beginners. I've been too ambitious I think...very fitted garments=super hard, lol. This looks great :) What a cool print!

  9. Adorable!!! I'm following your link from Pattern Review and love the fabric you chose.
    I'm actually making one for myself right now and having a really difficult time with the neckline. I wondered if other people were having the same problem. It looks like I'm the only one having this problem. I probably just need to ignore my kids for 5 minutes and actually read the instructions!!! Keep up the great sewing!!!

    1. Yes I had trouble attaching the neckline too mainly because I'm so inexperienced. I had to read the instructions over and over and watch you tube videos before it finally just clicked in my head. Don't give up you'll get it!

  10. Great job! I just made view E. I really like this pattern, but I don't think my neckline worked out as well as yours though.
