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 cut a size 6 for the bust tapering to a 8 for the waist and used skirt 8 skirting. The skirt is just a half circle skirt, a wee bit of flare and still able to twirl around, BUT! I much prefer a full circle skirt instead. The sewing instructions are quite clear and the dress whips up very fast and breezy. The pattern calls for facings to close the front neckline and back and uses bias tape for armhole.
