little black dress







since i started sewing clothes in april of this year, ive sold 40 something clothes on and off etsy, sewed more clothes for family and friends, and did not have time to make anything for myself. but finally, i made a little black dress for my self this week! i had a firm christmas party yesterday, and i desperately needed something to wear to. 
i love how it turned out!! i modified the danielle pattern from burdastyle. i love danielle pattern - i used it so many times, and it has a lot of possibilities for different versions. i cut out the smallest pattern, and then made 2 more sizes smaller to make it really fitted to me. for waist band, i narrowed it a bit, front skirt, i added darts instead of pleats. shortened the length for like 5 inches. i wore it with shimmery  purple cardigan that i got from flea market with tights and pumps.
