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.
Only the bodice is lined. Inner garment views:
