New Look 6892 Completed & Pattern Review

After sitting in my sewing room as UFO (UnFinished Object) for several months,  I finally found the motivation to complete this top.   Here's my Pattern Review

Pattern Description: Misses easy to sew tops.

Pattern Sizing: Sizes 6-16

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy to follow

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Didn't like the bias tape for a casing along the neckline. Worked OK for me because I was able to get a reasonable colour match, but would consider self fabric if I couldn't.

Fabric Used: Embroidered cotton batiste/gauze

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: left out the ribbon tie because I want to wear it with a long necklace & pendant. The ribbon might make it too busy.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes

Conclusion: Great Pattern,  easy to sew.  Would make a great beginner project.  Thinking about making the short sleeve version for summer.   A longer version would make a great beach cover up.


  1. Very beautiful. I have made this pattern about 3 times. I love your fabric choice

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. Girl, I had to show restraint because I have a lot of patterns and I haven't sewn some from the last BMV purchase. But your top is so cute and I love the fabric. I looked at that pattern the other day while was in Walmart:)

  3. That is so pretty, feminine, flirty. It would look beautiful with cream color skirt or pants. Nice work!

  4. I just found your blog and am enjoying reading your posts. I just posted about this pattern too. I think I have sewn it 4 times now! Great blog.

  5. I really like this pattern. Sometimes simple is best because it gets the most use in your closet. I haven't had this version yet. Super cute.
