This week was epically busy. All I have a desire to do right now? Sleeping and eventually waking to drag to the sewing room in my PJs. But that's not hardly going to happen! But I shall persevere!
On yesterday, I needed to get dressed and I needed to dress quickly. So I grabbed this LBD from years gone by, but still so relevant. This is what I tell y'all about making things that will stand the test of time. A little black shift dress will work wonders in your wardrobe. A dress like this can go from day to evening; from trendy sandals to a classic pump. Mileage people, mileage!
This dress was probably the first project that introduced me to the exposed zipper. The instructions for insertion were great. That's the thing about VP's designer patterns: you learn so much and so many different techniques. They're worth buying and making them for the finished garment of course, but for the lessons taught.
