Black & White dress

Using pattern: Simplicity 3749

Size 8, View A, This is for my daughter. Recycled white fabric that Mom will probably recognize. The neat thing on this one is the little black line around the bottom. I didn't have any black ribbon for that accent so I tried something new. I zig zagged around a piece of worsted weight black yarn and I LOVE the result. I may never do ribbon like that again. It was easy, forgiving, and has a nice fuzzy look to the accent. I was trying to make a more "grown up" looking dress. I think she may wear this with tights to's too cute to save for Sundays only!

I forgot to mention that the neck facing doesn't stay down on this dress so you have to top stitch it in place.
