Description

I didn’t own a Little Black Dress so it was time to make one. And what better pattern than Sewaholic’s Cambie.

The dress came together so easily. I chose to use bias binding on the neckline and sleeves instead of lining it. It took a long time to handsew it all on but I think it behaves much better this way because I could shape it as I sewed it instead of putting it through the machine and pretending it was flat.

I love it so much I’m making another version for Christmas Day.

    Great job! I really like the sweat heart neckline, it has romantic softness to it. Dress it up, dress it down, you can never go wrong with a little black dress, especially one that looks fabulous on you!
