I rarely wear black these days, but since the silly season is upon us, it’s time for an LBD.
I originally cut and added the collar piece but it just didn’t sit or look right. Time to create the ole trusted bias binding. Now I think the dress has more of a 40’s look about it!
Another change I made was using the facing for sleeves, worked a treat!
These photos were from a farewell for a work colleague, I just happen to borrow her pressie which matched my outfit!
