New Look Pattern 6291

Monday, April 8th, 2019

 One of our kids ‘Design with Denim’ sewing competition entry is from Brooke Briscoe.

Brooke has been attending our kids sewing club for several years now and has certainly developed some excellent sewing and design skills.

Brooke made a gorgeous denim jumpsuit from New Look Pattern 6291 and did a fabulous job!

Check it out below & read her inspiring story behind making this outfit.

New Look 6291

Style A with moderations: Thinner straps and bow.
Fabric: Denim/Chambray

By Brooke Briscoe

My inspiration for my piece was a comfy but casual look.

Denim Entry Brooke Briscoe 01
I wanted to have a piece of clothing that I could wear out of my house which I would look nice in, but not look too fancy. I was looking through the patterns and as soon as I saw this pattern I fell in love with it.


Denim Entry Brooke Briscoe 02

I wanted to add creativity so as I could display my originality. I added a little bow on the side which was the opposite colour of the first main colour, I had for a little touch to show that I had made it.

The reason I chose to enter this competition was to see what my strengths can lead to.

I love the idea of this competition and would love to go through this experience again.
