Yesterday I spotted this cute jersey black dress (on the left) @ All Saints sale. But, seriously, I am not paying $200 for a dress on sale which I can make myself for, at least, half the price. The Burdastyle sheath dress pattern (on the right) offers slightly different neckline (which, on my opinion, is even more flattering), but overall looks as good as All Saints'.
That's one of the reasons why I started sewing! And you?
