Synopsis

In 1926, Coco Chanel designed the little black dress; it was hugely versatile for many different occasions and continued to be fashionable year after year with simple amendments and different accessories keeping it up to date. Nearly 90 years later, the little black dress is still a wardrobe essential and each season designers continue to adapt new versions of this classic. This book supplies patterns for a number of different styles of little black dress, with instructions on how to make different styles of necklines, sleeves etc., showing the reader how to adapt and customise the basic patterns.
