A few weeks ago I happened upon a new blog called That Black Chic and fell head over heels in love with one of her projects. I even featured her blog and the project on one of my blog trippin posts. I just had to have a dress like it, so I set out to make that happen. I decided to make use of fabric already in my stash (a stripped tweed wool blend) and used bits of leather left over from a previous project. The fabric was gifted to me a very long time ago so this ensemble really cost me nothing but time.
I did have to work up two muslins to make this simple McCall's jumper work, but I love the fit results so muslining was well worth my time. Without further ado here is a picture of my knock off of That Black Chic's knockoff - of the Ralph Lauren Blue Label Dellora Tweed Dress.
