Basic Black!

While many patterns were hacked to create this dress, I can happily state that every inch of its fabric is from Mood. ­čÖé

It was time for a new black winter dress; an all purpose dress to wear whenever and wherever.

My inspiration came from the current Oscar de la Renta Ready to Wear collection.

I love the way this dress skims the body, but I had no pattern that included all of its features.

After using bits and pieces from several patterns, I’m calling this┬áThe McVoguerick Tunicbiblicity dress.

While it was an absolute pain to put this dress together, the fabric was an absolute pleasure to sew!

Mood’s Single Wool Crepe was perfect for this dress pattern. Its pebbly surface creates a gentle texture, and the excellent drape makes it ideal for numerous garments.

The crepe also features a slight give along the crosswise grain.IMG_0011

I lined the dress with Mood’s Black China Silk/Habotai. The lightweight China Silk made for an ideal lining especially for the flounce. I toyed with the idea of leaving the flounce unlined, but the China Silk did not affect its drape or movement,

and this wonderful lining is available in 95 colors!
