That’s right, I finally created a “LBD”. My new client sent a photo of the inspiration, and I think I nailed it. I used a mixture of patterns my imagination and pattern drafting skills to create this baby. I can’t tell you the exact fabric, ummm it’s black and a knit found it at the Michael Levines loft.
I’m thinking about the creating process which only took me about 2.5 hours to cut and sew. Yes I know that’s quick. The way I work is study the design and basically cut & sew it together in my head. During this process I literally wake up from dreams of sewing the garment. I know, its crazy I sew in my sleep. However once my sewing in my head process is complete I have a clear vision of how to construct the garment. I can now getting in my sewing space all alone (I cannot work with people in the house) and knock it out. I turn on some music to make me feel great and get into it. While creating this piece I listened to this early 2000’s YouTube Mix It reminded me of when I was a little girl when I first started sewing in Middle school.
Back to the little black dress, I haven’t made very many but this little number here will have me creating some more #memade LBD’s.
My Bona fide THEORY: Every lady should make a LBD, oh and give my sewing in your head method a chance, it makes you think out your project and cuts back on mistakes.
