Holiday Dress One~Black Lace and Sequins Shift Dress

This is the most simple and flattering design ever! I'm not sure how I got turned on to making a shift style dress but I'm glad I did.
I was a little unenthusiastic about this project all together at first. The lace wasn't exactly what I was looking for or the lining. After I drafted and cut the pattern the pieces sat pinned on my Judy for about a week before I finally got it down to sew it. And during the first fitting I fell in love! This has turned out to be one of my favourite designs ever! More to come...
