This is my little black dress. I used the Danielle pattern and made a few modifications (basically the same as the Maya pattern.) It is made from a black knit wool, so I had few seams and no closures, simple! the way I like my garments!
I left the sleeves off, made the skirt a bit more A line, shortened the hemline, and I chose to make an all in one facing. I have been itching to use that technique since I tried the Azalea pattern long ago. I also serged all seams so it is very neat and professional looking inside; also I wont have to worry about popping seams as I pull it on.
This dress is super comfortable and versatile, I am very pleased and will probably make another with a lower bust line and tighter skirt for date night!
ps, I passed over this pattern so many times until I saw erdronen’s version, versatility at its best!
pps! I got this fabric for a buck out of my favorite midtown dollar bin!
