This drapey, Grecian-inspired dress is from a Vintage Vogue pattern. It’s a nice, deep red knit. I was inspired to do this by Casey of Elegant Musings (one of my favorite sewing bloggers!).
I didn’t follow all the instructions (been working in a theater costume department too long— I’ve gotten cocky), so Casey’s dress has a little bias strip around the neckline. I left that out and just folded it over like a facing. I kind of like it better that way though
I made this for a theater opening of a show I worked on.
Red Knit. It was a pain to work with. It kept curling up in the seam allowances— hard to cut. However, the “stretch and sew” technique works great for machine hems. (Thanks, Mom!)
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
