Everyone needs a little black dress, right? For this one, I used the Pussy Bow Dress by Salme Patterns. I am a huge fan of Salme Patterns. There's just something about them that fits my body so well. Maybe it's the elasticated waist?!!?! And they have a new pattern out - Paper Bag Waist shorts. I have a serious crush on those, in black with little white polkadots.
I lined this dress, which though not in the directions, is easier than you think and gives the dress a really really nice finish. It makes it feel great to wear.
And something I discovered in making this dress; black is not an easy color to photograph.
You can go over and read all about how to add a lining to this dress at Fiskars.
