From a free pattern, McCalls M5466. I had some leftover wool from an fashion show and I decided I needed a new LBD. And, here she is. Easy as pie.

Material Notes

Black wool, zipper, fusible interfacing.

    This dress looks really smart on you, particularly with the red belt. I had seen the pattern, but the picture wasn’t very clear, and I didn’t realise it had the pleated neckline detail, which seems to be very ‘in’. Thanks for making me aware of it – I’m definitely going to make it for my daughter.

    Well done. It is a really nice fit on you. I love the neckline and the added touch of the red belt.
