Book review: The Little Black Dress by Simon Henry
The little black dress, by Simon Henry
No woman in the world should be without a little black dress! And that's an understatement...
The little black dress is always chic, classy and ideal for styling for different occasions: an evening party, a formal business-meeting or just a nice casual day. Add some accessories, handbags, a coat, shoes or boots or combine it with sneakers. Everything is possible and timeless beautiful.
But where to find a little black dress that really fits?
Here you have the answer: make one yourself! A tailor-made Little Black Dress ('LBD') could be yours.
The backcover-page of the book promises it is possible even though you do not have any experience with sewing. Expert dressmaker Simon Henry will guide you through the process of making the perfect little black dress.
Unfortunately we do not agree. It takes some knowledge of sewing and some experience in cutting the pattern, shaping it on a dressform and sewing your own tailor-made little black dress.
But we agree on the great guide the book offers. The pictures are loud and clear. The drawings are perfect and the background-information is really very nice.
The photographs are stunning and the layout of the whole book is really worth every penny.
We definitely recommend this book. But make sure it will not be your first project, otherwise it probably won't work. Unless you are really very talented.
And please, show us your little black dress ! Good luck with the project and good luck with this beautiful book.
