Black Blimp Dress


Looking at some of the photos I took for this post brought me to this reaction: I looked like THAT last night?! What a blimp!

Pockets!
The black blackiness of the dress is a little too much I think, but I needed a plain black dress as I lacked one.

I enjoy my legs
It's another Vogue 8723, and was very frustrating second time around too, but not as much as the first. I used black poplin for both the shell and the lining.


 Okay, maybe I did have more fun making this one than the other one. Black is, however, a lot harder to sew with in lower light conditions, and seeing as my sewing machine lacks a light (because the bulb literally blew up very near my face maybe two years ago and I have not been able to get the shrapnel out to replace it) boy was this a doozy. But It was all okay. Perhaps I'll make another one. Maybe. Or is three of one dress to much?!
