Little Black Dress

March 5, 2010 in General

Everyone needs to sew a little black dress at some point in their sewing career. This dress was made for my sewing class at Kent State University and the entire class had to use the same satin fabric. The goal was to differentiate yours from your peers by adding another fabric, through the style of the dress, or the sewing techniques used. Any or all of those could be combined but I decided to get a contrasting fabric (gold charmeuse) and I died cotton french lace edging purchased from Martha Pullen for the hem. I pin tucked the front bodice piece and I had 5 rows of pin tucking above the hem. This satin was such a great fabric to work with, I really enjoyed it!
