Big Black Dress FREE PATTERN

BBD by Needle and Ted

Hands up those of you who wake up some mornings, have a quick shower, tie your hair back (without brushing it) and throw on the same clothes you wore yesterday. Some days you just can’t be bothered to iron a fresh new shirt, or figure out what top looks good with what trousers. You just want getting dressed to be effortless. So with this in mind I made myself a Big Black Dress that I can just chuck on over a pair of leggings and go. No ironing, no fuss, no effort. Dress and go.

Not only is it easy to wear but also super easy (and quick) to make. Want to make one for yourself?

How to make a Big Black Dress

You will need:

  • Big Black Dress pattern (one size fit all most)
  • 2.20m of medium weight knit fabric. (The dress in the image above is a black quilted knit, but I have also made one in a chunky grey rib and it looked fabulous.)

That’s it, I told you it was easy.
