LB(and white)D

I think I'm working my way out of my slump. Here is a version of Jalie 2806 turned into a dress. I really like it and I think it would make a nice LBD. This is my trial version. The only thing I'll change in my "real" version is to make it a bit wider at the bottom. I'd like to use a silk jersey or a black jersey with a subtle pattern. And I'm making 05/2008 #125 also because I couldn't decide between a knit dress and a woven. So, why not have two??

And I love that it is cool enough for tights again. These are purple to continue the purple/grey trend.

Love the colored tights. Very trendy this Fall. Dress looks smashing on you, as always.

That one also looks great as a dress. It look good with the 3/4 sleeves.

I love the dress.

As for the next version, I don't know about adding width to the bottom. The slight appearance of tapering on the front view adds a sexiness. The bell shape of the hem on the back view looks odd (to me).

If the "real" fabric is VERY drapey, it will be OK, but if it's stiffer you might want to play with that taper.

That's my 2 cents' worth.
