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!
