The Little Black Dress

Everyone needs ‘that little black dress’ (or two or three). After I got my December 2005 issue of Patrones – I knew exactly what I had to make. A Vero Moda dress – it’s stunning! I got a black bundle from Fabric Mart recently. I’m sure one of the weaves will work perfectly for it. In the meantime, I was thinking about making something less formal – something like this:

This mini skirt designed by Just Cavalli and is in the February 2006 issue of Patrones. It’s really cute, but I’m afraid the pockets are going to make me look like I’ve got giant saddlebags attached to my hips. I’m not sure that it’s going to be flattering, what’s someone else’s opinion?
