Little Black Concert Dress

June 17, 2013

As a longtime musician I’m always looking to add to my black “concert dress” collection, but this is the first time I’ve actually made myself something in good old concert black! I used the very basic Retro Butterick 5748, which is a lovely simple bodice and circle skirt. I just made a couple small adjustments (changed zipper location, added pockets) and it went together very easily. I’m pleased with the result, would love to make this one again with a great print!

The hat is another lucky local vintage find!

  1. Yaaay concert black! What a fabulous dress. I may have to follow your lead and make my own concert black since I can’t find anything that fits the bill.
