Sew now, wear forever! This sexy sheath dress is your go-to ‘little black dress’ that will never go out of style.


This dress is sexy and sophisticated! It features a high mandarin collar with a slit at the front neckline to show a little skin. It fits snug to the body to show off your curves.


This sleek dress features a high collar and short sleeves. It fits close to the figure and has sophisticated bust darts for a perfect fit.

Happy Sewing!

    I like the entire collection, even the first dress! I agree with some of the other ladies that if you don’t like the flounce/ruffle omit it. You can get creative and change the flounce/ruffle by using a different color, fabric or texture to create more interest, if you like.

    Beautiful collection, but what exactly is going on with the ruffles on the first dress? That should not be happening, it isn’t a good look.

    Finally! A decent plus-size collection! The only stinker in the bunch is the first dress with the flounce. But even that can be fixed if the ruffle is shortened and made with a semi-sheer fabric or tulle. And thank you for using a model who has some curves…

      I just looked in the magazine, the ruffle is on top of the dress, so it could just be omitted, and have a simple dress.

    Please, please! Please create more plus lines like this! This is a lovely, sometimes serious, sometimes flirty collection. It is a real winner, not a tent showcase!
