Présentation de l'éditeur

Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly. . . . Each of these women had an influential take on the most classic wardrobe staple of all: the Little Black Dress. In this chic sewing book, patternmaker Dolin Bliss O'Shea pulls inspiration from famous LBDs throughout history—including Mary Quant's mod mini, a classic wrap dress worn by Liza Minelli, Princess Diana's smart A-line, and more—and offers patterns for reinterpreted versions that are perfectly stylish. Including 10 full dress patterns with sewing variations to make 20 garments in all, a primer on sewing techniques, vintage photographs of style icons, and full-color shots of the finished pieces, this book has everything fashionistas need to bring timeless style right into their closets.

Yes!!!!!!! Finally, the book I've been waiting for:)..... I bought the other famous frocks, hopeless - ridiculous sizing, no finished garments - only redeeming factor the pics of the inspiration. I bought the Vintage pattern selector - same exact crit. Now, I fit into the large from both - which. Is. Crazy. 37 bust is not a size to stop at when the average bust is larger!

This is beautiful. Fabulous photography, every pattern and variation is photographed on a model and beautifully made. Sizing is realistic - goes from an XS at 33 - 25 - 36 up to XL at 45 -37 - 48. Made for a woman of average height ie 63 to 66 inches with some curves who wears a c cup bra..... she discusses what ease is built in to the patterns, which are printed - no flipping PDFs to printout from a CD, whooppee! The paper is not tissue but not the cartridge type a lot of Indies use either - it's sort of like the big four instruction sheets, I like:). What other info can I give anyone who's on the fence - let's see. Seam allowances are standard 5/8 inch and are included:). There are about 30 pages of general instructions, which include things like Hong Kong seams, finishing necks or afmholes on knit fabrics, sewing all in one facings and lining dresses and zipper installation.

The instructions are detailed without being overly so - I'm sometimes slowed down by the too detailed instruction in an Amy Butler pattern, though I really like some of them. There are a few steps illustrated, enough for me, but YMMV. Oh the variations, I almost forgot. There are ten iconic frocks, and ten variations there on - these are coloured, not black and these are sometimes made with some drafting, like both Gertie's books. The drafting needed is fully illustrated, but one would need a French curve or hip curve for a couple of variations.

I can't talk about the patterns themselves but with this lady's experience and from the look of the finished garments I have no doubts that they will be great. I will muslin at least my first make just to see how her sizing works for me, and cannot wait to get stuck into most of the projects in this book. I say most only because I don't have the right shape for a couple of them, more's the pity....

This not a beginner's book - in that case, you want Tilly Walne's Love at first stitch, or the Colette sewing handbook - both have realistic sizing and cute patterns on paper - recommended. This is for a sewist with a bit more experience, not a beginner. That said, I believe a confident semi beginner with some clothing under her possibly handmade belt could easily tackle the projects starting from some of the simpler ones. From my blog reading I know a lot of sewists wish for more sophisticated indie patterns - well, here you are!

Highly recommended by a picky person!

Terrific Book! The designs are great and the patterns are all included along with instructions on making variations. Very clean and easy to read and follow. I would highly recommend this book for those looking to make their own LBD.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 with larger than normal jumps between sizes - which is awesome! 22 octobre 2014

A Pattern book I can relate to! Keep in mind that this is a pattern book with stories. I have yet to create a dress from the book. However, the book is laid out with general instructions so that a beginner sewer can follow along. The author also describes techniques to use that would help the home sewer. Each dress is preceded by a photograph of the famous person wearing the dress and then the made copy, and then finally the instructions. The sizing of the patterns are different from standard pattern sizing - the patterns in the book are sized XS through XL, with larger than normal jumps between sizes - which is awesome!

I sew for other people, so getting this many patterns with many sizes is a real steal. I hope to be able to use the pieces interchangeably. I like the fashion history and am a nostalgia buff of the movies. The pattern pieces look pretty basic, but patterns have become very expensive to buy, so I would recommend this to anyone who likes to improvise and create new looks.

I have recently got back into sewing over the last year or so after having a break of about 15 years. To start myself off again I have purchased several sewing books, and read blogs, for ideas and patterns etc., but this is the best book I have found by far.

There are few items I would want to make in the other books I have purchased but in this book I am spoilt for choice and the only problem was which one to sew first. After much deliberation I chose to make the Grace skirt together with the Angelica top (I'm also currently sourcing fabrics for the Mary variation dress). I've still got a few finishing touches to do on the skirt and top (my machine went haywire, probably the shock of having to do some work after such a long time), but hope to get it all finished off within a couple of weeks and may even post a picture.

The sizing for the patterns I found to be spot on, I measured myself then chose the corresponding size and so far everything fits. There is a sheet included for each item, I think the variation for each one is on the reverse but I haven't checked every sheet so don't quote me on that. The seam allowances are included and the patterns themselves are a breeze to trace off. The terms and techniques have proved to be very useful so far and have given the garments a really professional finish. The photography in the book is beautiful and inspiring and I like the additional history about the stars featured.

All in all I love this book and hope that plans are in place to produce a follow up - I may have finished all of my projects by then.
