Black & White Dress Simplicity 3877

This poor neglected partially completed dress was abandoned amidst the renovations in my studio (ex granny flat). All sewing came to a screaming halt as the tradesmen moved in and the sewing stuff moved out.

As soon as I had the all clear I shifted the essentials back in and finished the dress in time to wear to the work Christmas lunch. The fabric is a cotton / lycra blend so it’s quite comfortable with the extra stretch. I like the bodice – especially the stand up collar.

Don't you just love the way my photographer angled the camera (14 yo son!). The fullness in the skirt comes from 8 godets. I made View D – the pink one. The Bodice has Princess Lines at the front and darts at the back. The zip is at the side and I didn’t make the belt.

When I got to work there were several black and white ensembles! We had a lovely lunch wrapping up the year in style!

  1. Great dress - very sharp! And well done for getting it done despite builders moving into your space.
