Black Celebration

♫ ♪ Black Celebration

Since I made a comeback to sewing, my wardrobe become very colorful.. Sometimes I miss wearing something simple and black..

For bodice of this dress I used pattern #108 from Burda 01/2013.. I added the self-drafted collar to make the dress a little more interesting.. The skirt is made out of two gathered rectangles.. The fabric is black cotton with sheer stripes.. The only mistake I made was sewing the bodice in the bust area very tight :( My first idea was to make a gold and red embroidery on collar, but in the end I was too lazy for that..

    I love the musical name! Guess what’s in my head right now…

    I also once designed a collection based on songs from that album.
