I had been looking for a decent empire waist pattern for a while. I wanted to draft my own at first, but since the best way to learn is to do, I kept searching for the pattern.
Browsing through the sewing community I spotted this dress from Atelier Scammet. What I love about their patterns is how neat they look. And the fact they do beautiful maternity patterns too is amazing ( a market that is catered for well in the Me made community) Check them out.
So How did It Sew?

Having invested heavily in a lot of black soft touch from my cheap shop it was the natural choice of a good basic. And as you can see, it has fitted into my goth summer wardrobe perfectly; I look like I am off to a coven meeting. I decided that although I loved the trim on the cuff detail, for my version I didn’t do that as I needed it to be as plain and basic as possible, and added some cute dome black buttons that I had spare.
I was surprised it was such a great fit, one thing that is always a worry is the boobs, yet the range of sizes fitted me perfectly.
This is one of many basic black items I seem to be making lately. Keep an eye out for the rest.
