LBD - Vogue 1567 top + LEHENGA skirt.-

A little black dress is a black evening or cocktail dress, cut simply and often quite short. Fashion historians ascribe the origins of the little black dress to the 1920s designs of Coco Chanel and Jean Patou intended to be long-lasting, versatile, affordable, accessible to the widest market possible and in a neutral colour. Its ubiquity is such that it is often simply referred to as the "LBD".

The "little black dress" is considered essential to a complete wardrobe by many women and fashion observers, who believe it a "rule of fashion" that every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion: for example, worn with a jacket and pumps for daytime business wear or with more ornate jewelry and accessories for evening or a formal event such as a wedding or a ball.

VOGUE 1567 Close-fitting top with dolman sleeves + LEHENGA SKIRT, both Paco Peralta-designer original.

For both garments I used stretch-wool crepe from TISSUS DE RÊVE. Skirt is fully lined with light stretch lining (polyester 100%), specifically designed to be used as a lining for underneath stretch fabrics.

Pattern Review: Vogue 1567 Top/Skirt.-

VOGUE 1567 Paco Peralta / Designer Original. Pattern description, from VOGUE PATTERNS website: Close-fitting top has dolman sleeves. Skirt has waistband with side draping that forms pockets.

I used black & white gingham taffeta (100% polyester) for the skirt, and black viscose/rayon knit for the top.

Seams are finished with double fold bias of black lining what makes it look clean and well-finished.
