Description

Famous Frocks: The Little Black Dress

Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly. . . . Each of these women had an influential take on the most classic wardrobe staple of all: the Little Black Dress. In this chic sewing book, patternmaker Dolin Bliss O'Shea pulls inspiration from famous LBDs throughout history—including Mary Quant's mod mini, a classic wrap dress worn by Liza Minelli, Princess Diana's smart A-line, and more—and offers patterns for reinterpreted versions that are perfectly stylish. Including 10 full dress patterns with sewing variations to make 20 garments in all, a primer on sewing techniques, vintage photographs of style icons, and full-color shots of the finished pieces, this book has everything fashionistas need to bring timeless style right into their closets.

Additional notes for Mary Quant Dress:
Layout diagrams on pages 112 and 113 are missing a second Cuff (G) piece in the diagrams. See the corrected diagram below.

On the Mary Quant pattern sheet, Cuff (G) says to "cut 4 contrast fabric" but should actually be "cut 4 main fabric."
