The Daily Dress: Full-Skirted LBD
When we think of the Little Black Dress, it's usually the sleek, slim-skirted model, right? But lately I've been dreaming about a fluffy-skirted dress in black cotton for summer. Like the Kate Spade number above. Wouldn't that be an incredibly useful dress to have in one's wardrobe? (Love it with the pink shoes and necklace!)
If I make my own version, I think I'll use New Look 6886. (I just got it for $1.99 at Jo-Ann! Yes, I have a Jo-Ann's now!)
I'd make View D, and add some box pleats to the flared skirt for extra fullness.
The fabric would be simple, like a black sateen or pique with just a little stretch.
Another great pattern option? Simplicity 1803, the pink version.
Anyone else down with the full-skirted LBD?
