The easiest dresses to learn to sew tend to be flowing and long – see how to sew a simple dress or how to sew a maxi dress. But sometimes we want something a bit more classy… something stylish and tailored that shows off your sun-tanned legs. We have hunted down a video tutorial for that all-time classic garment and wardrobe staple – the little black dress.
This dress is suitable for formal occasions, such as at the office, for a job interview or a dinner function. And black goes with everything so you can accessorize as much as your imagination can create… one garment, many different looks. This dress not only looks good, it is tailored loose enough to flatter your curves and yet still be comfortable to wear. Result on every level!
The sewing of this dress needs a little more time and concentration than some of the other sews, but it will be worth it. The video shows you, in almost real-time, how to sew a dress with verbal explanations of what is happening. There are also a few sewing hints thrown in along the way.
Being a tailored item, the dress needs a sewing pattern which you can purchase by following the link beneath the video. The dress demonstrated on the video is fairly short but as we don’t all have legs like the model you might want to increase the length. To do so, just extend the lower section of the pattern using a straight edge or rule. Just remember to buy more fabric to fit.
Once you know how to sew a dress, you will probably want to make his one again and again. After all, there are more colors than black. You could also use fabric with a floral or patterned print for something a bit more casual. Stand back world, patterned is the new shade of black!
