Do you own one?
Can you believe with all the sewing I do and have done that I do NOT own a LBD? It's just a dress made in black fabric right? LOL
Well I take that back, I do have this one:
But it's not TOTALLY black, so does that count?
I got my InStyle Makeover Magazine in the mail today and it showcased some great LBD's.
LOVE the embellished cuffs on #1
I MUST make a one shoulder dress!!!
LOVE the sparkly!! #14 is SO cute! I saw some fabric similar to this in Atlanta last time I was there. I ALMOST got it. I have to make sure it doesn't look like a "cheap club dress". I don't like that look lol.
LOVE teh peplum on #19!!!
Then #25...yesssss lol
Someone please tell me WHY it's so hard for me to make a black dress! I don't know what my problem is but I NEED to solve it.
I don't want just ONE LBD, I want a few lol. Crazy? Maybe lol.
I REALLY want to make this dress:
View A - The sleeveless black one at the bottom. I'm TORN on what kind of fabric to use. The pattern suggests lightweight flannel (AS IF), crepe and lightweight gabardine. Umm no. I don't want either of those. I normally just do my own thing with fabrics/suggestions but I don't know which way to go with this one lol. Suggestions? Hints? Tips? LOL
This is another dress I want to make:
Using Butterick 5282
I think this pattern/dress is timeless. I love it.
I also want a fun/casual type of LBD. I'm still on the fence with the patterns I want to use but I have my inspiration...just trying to get my plan together in my head.
Sooooo do you have a LBD? Link me in the comments. I want to see, and maybe it will help me get out of my LBD slump lol.
