It is #TBT so I thought I would re post one of my personal favorites. I forgot all about this LBD and this pattern. The NL 6083 was a favorite when it came out because it's so easy to manipulate. I made a color blocked dress from the same pattern in March 2012 (you can view that post HERE)
The pattern is still available HERE and here are a few of the modifications I made to the pattern:
- I added 6" to the length (this is a shirt pattern so you have to adjust)
- I made the neckline a v-neck
- I shortened the sleeves and removed 1.5" from the sleeve pattern for a more fitted look.
- I used a stretch pique fabric in black. Michael Levine has some great quality stretch pique HERE and don't forget to use my code "MIMI10"
The shoes were from Bebe (I think) and the bag is a Kate Spade
