LBD From My TNT Simplicity 1803

I wanted a quick and easy to wear LBD. You know for those days when you do not want to think about getting dressed. The fabric is a basic black crepe (acquired from Fabric Mart ages ago). 
This will be the third time I have come back to this pattern, Simplicity 1803. I really enjoy the neckline and sleeve. I had to shorten the torso quite a bit at the waistline and at the yoke to bodice seam. 
Another bonus for this dress...pockets! 
The only construction change this round was that I gave the pocket bags a quick stitch together just within the SA. This kept them from drooping and moving around by securing them towards the center front. 
 As always... I adjusted for square shoulder and broad back.
Only the bodice is lined. Inner garment views: 
 How about pink shoes to match the festive lining?!

  1. I love it!! I made this dress and immediately bought two more pieces of fabric to make it again!

    Perfect lbd. The neckline looks perfect, the gathers are perfect and I like the sleeve length.

  6. Those shoes are just fabulous! Of course, I think everyone needs more than one LBD (cause I think I have about three of them!) Good plan with the pockets - these little sewing nuggets are the best :-)
