Your little black dress is charming, Jennifer, and I love what you've done instead of adding the flounce. Lovely, Lily

Your dress is fabulous, and so much nicer than Vogue's drawing. Your cloud layer is a great idea.

Gorgeous! Love your changes to the flounce...I might have to copy you. I need this pattern..hopefully there's vogue sale soon.

What a great Little Black Dress, much more inspiring that the pattern drawing though I definitely agree that you could make a couple more of these and get different looks just using different fabrics.
