Dress with hood

Added Oct 5, 2008

I really like this red dress I made sometime ago and wear it almost everyday. So when I found yet another wall-hanging fabric, I decided to use the same pattern with some changes.

The bodice area is lengthened and a hood added. The hood pattern was traced from my husband’s hooded cardigan, with the neckline adjusted to the neckline of the dress. I also made a pleated area on the front, but instead of stitches, it is held by two buttons; creating an illusion of front opening. The sleeves are on fabric selvedge so I didn’t have to stitch the hem.

Worn with a simple petticoat underneath, the dress turned out nice and really comfortable. Love it.

    When I read the caption, that it is a dress with a hood, I was wondering if this is a good combination, but it looks great! Very stylish and it fits you perfectly! Great use of fabric.

    The fabric is beautiful and it’s your color: purple. No wonder you like it as much as your son likes his dog jacket :)

    I could go on and on, but you’re probably sick of reading my posts, so I’ll just say that you are such a good designer.
