Black and White DIY Twist-Front Dress

Today marks the first day of Black History Month. It’s hard to believe we’re already into the second month of 2021! I made this dress a few years ago, but never photographed myself we wearing it. I really love it and I’m looking forward to making it again in a solid color. What I like the most about this dress is that it’s very figure flattering and an easy sew. If you’re a beginner, the twist-front portion of the instructions may be somewhat confusing. There are a few YouTube videos you can watch that will help you with that portion of the dress construction. I’ve include a pattern review below. Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and enjoy your week!
