You can’t go wrong with a black dress can you! I have a selection of them already but wanted something that could look dressy but was easy to squash up in a backpack to travel without looking like a crumpled rag at the other end.
I’ve used Simple Sew patterns before so cut my usual size & within no time it was done!
The neckline turned out a little wider that I expected so I decided it needed a little extra detail! Out came the pliers & eyelets, an ofcut of cord & a tassel saved from who knows what😂
It got packed in my bag & survived the journey. It was comfortable to wear & felt smart(forgot to take pics of me wearing) The only problem was the facings felt like they rolled out a bit due to fabric weight so I might get it back on the sewing table and topstitch that😃
