Ventura County, ...
This year I decided I’m going to be more glam when it comes to sewing for myself.
My first project for the year is this little black dress.
I can’t believe with all the sewing I did last year that I didn’t even own one.
This is a perfect cool weather dress and is made from a heavier wight cotton lycra.
I used the pattern Simplicity 1716 for the top of the dress and drafted my own pocketed skirt and elastic waistband.
