This little black dress is literally the first dress I ever made, and I’m proud to say that it fit like a glove, and I received rave reviews at the formal family lunch I wore it to. The detail at the hem and armhole are stringed glass beads, while the belt is a sequined tulle ribbon with glass beads buckle. I didn’t think of this at the time, but it was QUITE A DRESS! For a beginner it was QUITE A DRESS INDEED!
