A holiday dress inspired by the one Chuck is wearing in the promo shoot for the series Pushing Daisies.
I used a Burda (magazine) pattern whose neckline, sleeves and skirt I modified. The dress is red lace underlined with a silk/cotton blend and lined with acetate.
My dress isn’t a cloned version of my inspiration: I chose to highlight the scalloped edge of the lace by letting it hang a little longer at the hemline and I left out the burgundy velvet ribbon belt (for fear of having to wear nothing but burgundy with the dress. Anyone else suffering from the same syndrom?). Also, knowing I would wear the dress on Christmas Eve, I allowed for a little more ease than the original so that I could eat (and breathe!) plenty. Oh, and I added pockets because, well, pockets!
