Just another Little Black Dress

Added Feb 10, 2012

by Madame Pelagie

Thessaloniki, Gr...






This is a dress I made with Colette’s sewing pattern Peony. It was a very easy dress to put together, and the result is very satisfying to me. I also really love the boat neck.

Material Notes

I used a 100% wool poplin, which has some stiffness to it, and kind of a shine. It is very warm as well.

    That’s interesting, MP. I’m still fairly new to sewing, so if I’m making anything but a skirt, I still have to make a muslin. I had to adjust the bodice of my taffy dress quite a bit!

    This is so cute, I’m going to tackle it this weekend. How did you find the fit? Did you make a muslin?

      Hi, Lara. Although I know I should be doing a muslin every time I make a dress, I almost every time get bored to do that, and I take the chance. It is important, though, to know that Colette’s patterns’ No 10 fits me OK, so it’s a small risk to take.
