Lavinia's Sweetheart Dress

So, I watched the entire season 2 of Downton Abbey yesterday and got inspired to get Dressing Downton back up and running again! Today's dress is a lovely black ensemble worn by Lavinia.

It features a sweetheart neckline and cute little shear sleeves.

It's fitted to the hips and has a gathered, layered skirt. In this shot, it looks like the fabric has some kind of metallic print on it. What a LBD!

While watching, I was struck by this dress' similarity to Sewaholic's latest pattern- The Cambie dress! The great thing about this pattern is that you could make it as fancy or simple as you like!

  1. I'm sure you could put 1 or more layers underneath to make it look even more like Lavinia's. Now if you ever do her teal dinner frock, I might have to steal it from you. LOL!
