Little black dress

I have my little black dress.

The only one in my closet.

With a little cardigan for all days.

With beautiful shoes for all nights.

The model is a Butterick pattern, 6582.

And sincerelly, a pleasure to sew !

I'm Bellis Winter, always lost in fabrics and colors. I love 40's and 50's, it's so important to be "myself" in clothes to feel better, to be feminine. Sewing all the time, sometimes knitting... I'm french girl who live in the south but love the north

I love using this pattern, I have the wiggle style in many versions ranging from floral to pirate skulls! Your little black dress is stunning.

I think you ‘ve a good idea to decline it in many versions…perhaps I will do it me too.
thanks a lot

This dress is SO cute! Perfect length, flattering, and versatile. It could be dressy or casual depending on your accessories. I could see this dress in a floral cotton print for spring, perhaps with a colorful cummerbund belt. Gorgeous!

Yes a floral cotton is a good idea, I choose black because I was trying to find The model for my engagement …to have The dress for this beautiful day…and I’ve tested 5 models….
Soon as possible I will show you “the Elue”
