New Look 6150 Ruched Top

Here come some grainy pics! This cute top is a very deep eggplant cotton/lycra jersey, it just doesn’t photograph well. So I lightened everything 🙂

Yes, New Look 6150, one of the Best Patterns of 2013 on Pattern Review. It only took me 5 years to find it – it really is a nice pattern:

I love how well this top tucks and stays in place!

It’s the top I was wearing with the high-waited linen pants in my last post:

Sewing notes:

  • I sewed View A, size 12, with no changes.
  • I marked every single notch and circle from the pattern – and used them all.
  • Just to share, I use a piece of calico as a pressing cloth for knits, and I seldom get pressing lines.

  • A tip – those long front edges are curved and have a narrow hem. It’s tempting, almost natural, to stretch it out as you pin and sew…but don’t! You’ll end up with a distorted and wavy edge. Kind of shake out the fabric so it finds its way, and let it guide you.

Like so many people before me, I’m hooked on this pattern. I’ve already sewn it in black jersey, and I have a cream jersey to start in the morning. I’m sticking with the fun stuff 🙂

Late breaking news: Preston’s soccer team won their league championship game today, and he scored a goal!!

  1. Lovely and elegant on you, Coco, even with jeans! I’ve always wondered how this style would look on a full-busted, prominent tummy figure and have been afraid to try. 😝
