Autumn wrap – New Look 6149

In anticipation of the cool weather, I have been considering New Look’s 6149. Today’s Mothers Day (Happy Mothers Day to you all) and it’s warm weather.

With the green print mesh I made this simple ‘as you please’ wrap top with long sleeves.

The first iteration was a bit short and the hem flipped up, so I undid the hem and cut the lining back so it now sits flat. It’s now in the charity pile – finished and ready for someone else to wear.

So I tried it again with 
– a bit more length (5cm)
– a larger front piece
– clear elastic along the front neckline seam.


This version was sewn on sewing machine. The cover stitch machine didn’t like the light weight knit I used.

The sizing of this version worked just fine and I’ll wear this with my Silhouette Patterns cargoes.

This third version uses a Charlie Brown remnant from Pitt Trading to go with my Minerva black jeans.

This has become a great autumn wrap top.

Here’s what the original print looked like.
This remnant has taken me a long to figure out how to use it on me and it’s now a fun top to wear. Petites can wear large prints.
