The Little Black Dress : How to Make the Perfect One for You, Paperback Book

The Little Black Dress : How to Make the Perfect One for You Paperback


The LBD is classic, timeless and a fashion failsafe.

But where to find one which is tailor-made, that fits you perfectly and complements your body shape?

The answer is to make it yourself! Even if you have never before sewn a stitch, expert dressmaker Simon Henry will guide you through the process of making the perfect little black dress.

The book begins with the materials and sewing techniques you need to get started.

Simon then shows you how to construct and fit a body block, based on your personal measurements.

The block forms the basis for all the patterns in the book and you can go on to make your first LBD.

There are three classic styles to work from: a chic shift; a stylish wraparound and an elegant strapless cocktail dress, with a jacket and hat to match!
