Los Angeles, Cal...
My husband noted that I have never made a black dress…most of my me-made dresses are bright colors or crazy prints. So I set out to make a black dress with my first Vogue pattern, 1042. Let’s just say that there’s a good reason why Vogue patterns have a reputation for being trickier. The bodice was an epic fail the first time I made it up, but a friend convinced me to go back and try again. I reworked a lot of the pieces and while it’s not perfect, it’s acceptable. I added a big poofy tulle skirt in an effort to distract from the bodice’s issues. It’s not quite a LBD anymore, but I’m glad I saved it from the UFO pile.
More pictures and details here.
Poly black plush fabric (not quite velvet or suede…not sure what it is; I bought it years ago) for the bodice, tulle and lining for the skirt.
