Another Little Black Dress

This dress gets so much wear that I thought it wouldn´t hurt if I had another one like this. The basic pattern of the new dress is the same (self drafted) but I cut the front about 15cm wider and added the cowl directly to the bodice. In the back, I left the selvedge of the fabric visible. The original dress has no darts, but in this version, I added a pleat in the back: I just tried the dress on and pinned the pleat. Then I draped the front, pinned it and stitched everything in place.

Black Back Wrap Skirt

The front of the A-line skirt is very simple, the back is wrapped and held in place by a grey riri zipper. The pattern is self drafted, the fabric is 100% wool.
Inside - I like the red bias tape and buttons:

Just finished my first (bed)socks in years - I think the last ones were from 1992 or so. . .
