UPDATE: I’ve posted the pattern for this dress on my blog as a free pdf download. Check it out here
This is a little black dress I made, inspired by the Hubert de Givenchy floor length gown worn by Audrey Hepburn in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I was also inspired by Myk’s adorable “At Tiffany’s” dress which used a similar neckline on a babydoll styled dress. After seeing it, I envisioned the neckline and cutout back on a slim sheath.
I drafted the pattern for this dress using part of the lining pattern for dress 125 from the 5/08 issue of Burda Modemagazin. It’s made of black wool suiting and lined with black lightweight taffeta. For more photos and info, check out my brand new blog, The Selfish Seamstress.
