Pattern Review hosts monthly sewing contests for members and since I joined this summer, I've been hoping for a contest that would inspire me to enter. October is that month! They are having a Little Black Dress (LBD) contest that starts today and runs through the end of the month. The rules are simple: It should be what you feel is a LBD and it must be styled for day and for night.
For me, the LBD will always be epitomized by that gorgeous sheath dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's - sleek, simple, and somthing that will never go out of style. I've wanted to own a similar, short version of the dress for forever, but my small bust and large booty has made finding one that actually fits near impossible. I think this might be my chance to finally get it. :)
My idea is to make a suiting style sheath out of lightweight black stretch wool that can easily move from the office to an after-work cocktail party with a few makeup and accessory changes. The problem is to narrow down the pattern choices. Here are the front-runners:
I'm really torn over which one to tackle. So, what do you think readers? Which one should I choose?
