Sew your tuxedo dress

Minimal, sleek and feminine, the tuxedo dress looks like a garment stolen from a man's closet and this is the beauty of this design. It's both minimalist and sexy. It looks like the perfect summer dress to me. You can wear it when you're in a rush and still have a distinctive, contemporary style.
I just found a couple of patterns (white, black) that are perfect to obtain this look.  They are ready to sew, but you can also make some alteration to them. Make it sleeveless and take down the neckline a bit if you want it to look more like Phillip Lim's vest dress  Have fun sewing!
