Mood Style: Little Black Dress

I'm one of those people that can never have enough loose-fitting little black dresses. I find them effortless, classic and comfortable.  This dress was made with black wool crepe from MoodFabrics.com, which, if you love crepe as much I do and understand the versatility of this awesome fabric, you will always keep this in your stash.  It has a nice weight and irons beautifully with very little fraying. This dress was made with Butterick 5211 with the following pattern alterations:• Added a front curved flap to the dress by:  1) cutting two pieces of the front pattern piece; 2) using a styling design ruler, cut a curve on the bottom right side of the fabric; 3) basting the front pieces together. • Drafted a long sleeve instead of the gathered sleeve • Removed one pocket • Removed 3" from the hem • Added a 9" zipper on the back seam

The coat was made with a beautiful wool from MoodFabrics.com that is unfortunately sold out online.  Editor's note: Find lots of wool coatings here. The pattern is McCalls M6657 view B with the following alterations: • Added a seam to the arm
