So, I’m going to a gala fundraiser in a few weeks and want to buy a simple black dress - picture a round neck line, below the knee, short sleeve sheath dress. A string of pearls and it’s classic, right?
Ha! No where to be found. All the dresses in the mall are low cut, tight, short or too sparkly. Not even close.
I do sew, so I marched myself to the fabric store for a look. I have time to make something.
I love Asian look dresses in a brocade. I brought home a pattern and 1/8 of a yard of brocade to mull over. Also a pattern for a sheath dress. I’d rather not have to make a dress, but I will.
I’ve tried the major department stores and on line. I hesitate to buy on line because if the fit is wrong I won’t have time to exchange it.
Where have you bought a simple black dress?
