||StyleArc:Heather Dress (Dresses)
||I was motivated to participate in this contest because I have never actually owned a LBD! I have had this wool sateen sitting in my stash for almost a year now. I was going to use it for a skirt but I decided to use it for my LBD instead. It has a subtle sheen to it but it isn't too shiny, doesn't wrinkle easily, and has a good amount of "heft" so it skims the body. The pattern I used is the StyleArc Heather. It makes a great LBD because the square neckline and bust shaping looks good under cardigans and jackets as well as alone, and the extended shoulders give good coverage. The pattern doesn't call for a lining but I added one using Ambiance. I had fun sewing it and I love wearing it!
