The day has come and Season 2 of Project sewn has started! After reading about the first season and loving all the pretties sewn during the competition, this time I am all ready to take part in their sewalong:)For this week, its the little black dress challenge. I love the color black… And used to own many pretty black dresses previously (when I still got the figure… Now my bulging tummy is really stubborn and doesn’t want to say good bye to me yet. HA!) So now I got an opportunity to sew up my LBD.

I always dreamed of a sexy cut out back dress so I choose Simplicity 1651 sewing pattern with the sweetheart neckline version. And used a black poly poplin fabric (fabric.com) from my stash for it.
Pattern of the Week
A body skimming shift goes mod with graphic stripes and square neckline!
Three videos, a web seminar, and five patterns help you master stretchy stitching.
