McCall's,like Simplicity and New Look, has it's own version of mix and match pattern pieces to aid sewists in their quest to create unique, personalized garments. The line is called "Create It". About two months ago, I purchased M5753. This is a perfect pattern for that little black dress for which I have none. In October 2008 Toya devoted the entire month to the Little Black Dress, publishing several commentaries and photos of very well crafted LBD's. Toya's articles were exactly the encouragement I needed to start plans to make at least two LBD's.
Ms. Beyonce Knowles wore the cutest LBD to the premier of "Cadillac Records"; of course I would love to have her dress. But we all know her dress cost an obscene amount of money that I do not possess. There is hope. The McCall's pattern has some similarity and would be the perfect blueprint to mimic the Beyonce dress.
