Made by a Fabricista: A Little Black Dress in Velvet & Lace


Happy Holiday Peeps!

Mori needed a Little Black Dress for  Holiday Gala and this is what I came up with. She had one major request for her dress and it was that the dress had to have a deep "V" front. I knew right away that I was going to use the top of Vogue 9253 and the bottom I used Simplicity 1559. I had used both patterns for prior garments so the fit was not going to be an issue.

I picked this awesome scalloped lace and a stretch velvet, sadly both are no longer available but there are other options. I had to add a black mesh under the lace. The dress is fairly simple and you can make this in under 2 hours.









We'll end this post with my pick for best picture of the bunch!

I also want to share that my sewing magazine was released Nov 17th and I sold out of my first issue! 
The second issue is on sale now and I have some great things lined up for this issue including a Project Runway alumni. Stop by an grab a copy! www.sewnmag.com

 I Hope you enjoy your family and friends during this Holiday season.

  1. Wow, turned out great!

    Is the waist higher on this dress than on the original skirt pattern?

    2. Yes because the dress has a high waist.
