Added Jan 22, 2014
Making a little black dress was on my to-do list. I badly needed a simple but at the same time particular dress with an interesting detail, suitable for every occasion. So, this dress is based on knotted long sleeve top from February issue of Burdastyle. With its interesting knotted neckline and a keyhole feature this little black dress acquired a sophisticated look.
My modifications of the pattern: I lengthen the top to the desired length, added the ruffle piece just by gathering the strip of babric. Also I shortened the sleeves length by 10 cm (they are too long).
