Marianne Dress in Black & White

Though my love for stripes and dots is widely known, I knew that the Marianne Dress in solid black would pretty much be the ultimate staple. So when I found a heavyweight ponte knit, I jumped at it for a classic and chic version.  

I used the dress front and back of View A, then added the elbow sleeves and cuffs of View B. For a punch on the cuff, I used solid white buttons sewn with black thread. According to my man, this makes the dress. 

As for the construction, there's not a lot new to be said, as I sewed this up per the instructions at my usual size 10. I know this dress is bound to get a lot of wear since it's simple and classic. 

Happy weekend to you all!
