The Little Black Dress!!! McCall 6069

Every girl should have that simple black dress for that very special occasion, and being that I needed a new one, I figured sewing one up was better than going out and finding one. You know the saying, if you're looking for it most likely you won't find what you're looking for. It's only when you're not looking for it do you see it. As Sunday was my birthday, and I had a wedding to do, I figured I could kill two birds with one dress and McCall 6069 was the ticket. With the weather being in the late 80s early 90s, it was perfect. The fabric I used was leftover from this jumpsuit that I designed last year. Once cut out, this dress came together pretty quickly. I don't know if it only took me an hour, but I do know it was less than 2. I would definitely make it again but probably in a patterned fabric. I forgot my camera, so my iphone had to work some overtime. The full review can be found here on PR.

Happy birthday! I was just checking this pattern out today, thinking how cute it was. Nice to know that it's so simple. I have a jersey knit from the Vera Wang $1.99 sale that would work well for it... You're giving me ideas!

I answered you over on my blog comments so I figure I post it here just in case

Hi Andrea,
I first had Fabric Savvy and I was perfectly happy with it. When More Fabric Savvy came out I bought it and gave the other book to my mom. I honestly don't recall the differences, both books look the same but I guess there is a little bit more info in the revision it is just not obvious. I think you would do fine with either one.
