So I'll tell you that I made this latest little black dress for fashion, but the reality is that it's just the quickest way I could think of to disguise the little belly I'm creating by eating way too many potato chips lately. (
You saw my last LBD that I made, but that was more for fall or winter. This is my summer version, for the office.
See, don't I look super fit and trim! It's all due to my dress. You think I joking, but I'm not~ (And no, I'm not wearing Spanx or any other fancy pants new wave version of a girdle.)
It's made from what turned out to be quite a nice T-knit that I picked up from the bargain bin ages ago.
I used New Look 6154. I don't think it's in stock anymore but it's a nice little basic dress if you ever come across it in the second hand stores. My dress is supposed to look like the short sleeved red one.
The whole thing, from cutting to hemming, came in under 2 hours.

Do you have an LBD? Does it get much use or is the whole LBD thing a myth in your eyes? What do you think? (What I really want to know is...what's your biggest craving that you can't resist?!?! And how do you overcome your cravings? Tell me so that I know I'm not alone in trying to get this monkey off my back!)
