PROJECT 17: LBD NO. 1

LITTLE BLACK DRESS NO. 1: I love this dress, which I found hanging on the clearance rack about a year ago. The dress fits me nicely despite the length being a bit too long. Without making any alterations, I wore the dress to a wedding last summer. But this year, I decided to hem it.

I’ve never worked with this silky-type fabric before so my first attempt at a straight hem was a failure. No big deal because I had a brilliant idea. Just find a nice matching ribbon or lace ribbon and sew to the bottom of the dress. No hemming necessary.

At Hobby Lobby, I spent hours poring over the gigantic ribbon section and deciding which trim would look best with my dress. I thought this sparkly little number would match nicely with the rhinestone thingys on the straps. And I love my new little black dress — right length, cute little hem. Just perfect for me.
