Happy Monday Lovelies!


I had only a few hours on Friday to make something for Abigail for her cousin’s SpiderMan themed birthday party the next day, so I decided to use a commercial pattern because drafting one would probably take too much time. I’ve been meaning to try NEWLOOK 6238 for a while, so this was the perfect opportunity!


This pattern is just too adorable! Here is my review:

Pattern DescriptionNEWLOOK 6238

Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 3 and used a one inch seam allowance, because she’s between a size 2 and 3 at the moment.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing it? Mostly, but that is because of my own modifications.

Were the instructions easy to follow?  Yes. I was able to finish within a few hours.

What did you particularly like about the pattern?  I love how adorable it is! LOOK AT IT!! lol

What did you dislike about the pattern? Nothing.

Fabric Used: Quilting Cotton I bought from Miochael Levine Inc in store. They don’t have this particular print online, but you can find some similar ones they have HERE.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  I made a few:

  • Instead of using bias tape around the neck and arm holes, I lined the entire bodice.
  • I added 2 more inches to the back peplum piece to give it a longer flare.
  • I used in invisible zipper instead of a regular zipper. (Which made me realize the next big thing I need to learn is how to install an invisible zipper into a lined garment so it absolutely does not show on the outside and insidehilowpeplum10
  • I made french seams ….what can I say, I’m hooked! lol hilowpeplum9





And of course some twirling happened….lol

hilowpeplum6This pattern was such a quick sew and came out so adorable, I’m sure I’ll be making more in the future!

Thank you cousin Shane for inviting us to your 5th Birthday Party!! We love you!


Thanks for stopping by today guys! Talk to you soon!

  1. Thanks for sharing. I’ve been inspired to try making this for my daughter. Does this pattern already includes seam allowances or do I need to add them in when I go to cut my fabric? Thanks in advance for the reply!!
