That little black dress
Added Oct 12, 2010
I think it’s about time that I start challenge myself with something else than dresses. I do have plenty of dresses, but it’s so hard to stop… And I have been looking for a pattern like this for quite a while, and I was extremely happy to find this. I constructed the skirt instead of using the pattern, in order to get the 3/4 circle skirt (which I just love!) and added pockets (of course). Next time I use this pattern (and there will be a next time), I will cut out some of the pattern at the front forming the “tuck” to make this a little smaller. There is too much fabric in the front loop now, and I didn’t manage to tuck it properly. This was meant to be a more or less everyday dress, to be used with a cardigan, but the gorgeous, shiny cotton sateen makes this more formal. Still love it though, and for once I put lining in. I guess that also adds up with the formal feeling.
