Elaine, otherwise known by the moniker of The Selfish Seamstress, says that she loves to design and sew garments, but only if she gets to keep them. What a greedy gal! Although she likes to swagger and say that she is tough as nails, we don’t think she is as selfish as all that; look at this free downloadable PDF sewing pattern she has on her blog! She says, “This is a pattern for a dress inspired by Hubert de Givenchy’s gown worn by Audrey Hepburn in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s….. The dress is a lined sheath with armhole princess seams on the front bodice, darted skirt, darted back, and side invisible zipper.” We adore the elegant back, with its unique cut-out shaping that mimics swooping butterfly wings, and know the perfect black stretch wool tricotine it sew it in!
