Pleather little black dress

Black pleather dress

I’m clearly on a roll – at least for taking photos late at night with poor lighting…

For more ‘everyday’ (ok, not really) sewing, I wanted to test out a simple pattern, since I have had to re-jig my basic dress block. I decided to do my “muslin” in a wearable fabric so that if it all worked out I’d have a new dress out of the equation. I used a black pleather (faux leather) fabric which I really like, and have lots of, to substitute in for the vinyl and leather I’d like to make the same/similar style up in once I perfect the pattern.

The fit isn’t totally perfect – but I didn’t want a super-tight dress either…
