I made this little black dress for the Project sewn sewalong.
It is made from a silk shantung and V8555 pattern.
Nice and easy to sew and I added a bit of sparkle by adding a sequin midriff. I also used a couture method during the sewing process by hand stitching the zipper in.
More info and pics can be seen on my blog
