Black Tie Party >> Little Black Dress

In looking at my closet, I realized that I only had a few "every day" black dresses.  Easily fixable.  A little thread and lovely stash jersey knit fabric later, I had a new dress.  

To make the pattern I used a dress I already owned and pattern pieces from M6348 to add cap sleeves. I must say that I am getting pretty comfortable adding sleeves since my t-shirt project.  

I meant to take more dashing pictures of just me in my dress, but alas, the morning weather held a crisp chill. Luckily for me, I inherited a dashing coat from my grandmother that is super warm and a bit like playing dress up.  

As soon as I added pearls, I knew that I was fit for my simple version of a black tie party--laid back, relaxed, everyone dressed up in comfortable clothing that makes them smile.  Though that  probably goes against the grain of a true black tie event!
