the red dress
ahhh, here we go .. finally, a finished dress. One I had actually started last year and had been completely forgotten until recently. I must say, with the new serger it's so much easier to sew clothes now. I'm becoming addicted, so you'll see a lot more of this on the blog from now on.
Back to the dress. It's one of my favorite patterns from this book (Simple Chic, by Machiko Kayaki), which in turn is my favorite dress pattern book. I like the original black version, but as you know, red is my passion. I really love the way it turned out. The fit is perfect, and although the cut is quite simple, the small ruffles give it a somewhat sophisticated touch.
I can't wait to try more patterns from this book, especially for fall and winter. In the meantime, I have one more dress to show you soon, and last night I cut out a couple more tops I've been meaning to make since summer started (ah, and a shop update is coming later this evening, as promised)
