Luna's Little Black Dress

Hi there sweet followers - if there are any left out there?!

It's been a loooong time, sorry. I know that I'm very much neglecting this blog. I blame Instagram! Well, I'm back - for now at least.

My darling daughter is going to a party tonight and a girl can always use a new LBD, am I right?

So, I whipped this easy peasy one up in less than an hour - cutting and sewing included. It's based on the top pattern 22048 from Stof & Stil simply just lengthened to a dress. I added a couple of darts at the bust and left the edges raw. The dress is supposed to have a band/ribbing at the arm opening but Luna likes the deep armscye so I eliminated the band (which can always be added if she changes her mind). I also tapered the turtleneck a bit so it's more narrow in the top than the bottom.

I will hem the dress though, but the young lady hadn't time to wait for that before trying the dress. Well, I'm just happy that she's still so eager to test her mum made clothes :-)

The fabric is black scuba also from Stof & Stil. Scuba is just perfect for those fitted dresses.

    1. Thanks Saskia. I'll be sure to let her know - cause she doesn't think so, she's in fact a litte ashamed of her broad swimmer's shoulders....

  7. The dress is lovely, as is your daughter. I know what you mean about instagram. I joined couple weeks ago, and I have been so exited. For me the pictures are "it" in blogs as well, and that is why its so easy and tempting just browse the pics. And it´s easier to post one or two pictures than a whole blogpost.
