When I was younger I used to wear red all the time. Then for some reason I stopped, but I’m discovering the color again. This dress was kind of a go with the flow. I was planning to make a wrap dress, but when the fabric arrived I realized that it’s way to thin for that. It’s a tissue weight knit jersey. So I decided to make some easy, simple, comfy summer dress. I don’t know about the simple part, but it was easy and it’s comfy. I have doubled the bodice and added some stitching with silver thread. Also topstitched around the neckline and armhole.

Material Notes

rayon jersey knit
silver thread

    The silver detail is beautiful. Love the dress! Can you tell us the pattern if you used one?

      Thank You! I didn’t use any, worked on the dress form. But I have a good trick. Use an old t-shirt , put it on the dress form, mark the lines with tape or permanent marker. After that you just have to cut it and you have your perfectly fitting pattern. Unfortunately it only works with stretch fabrics:)

    Love the ruching at the waist! I love red, too, but I often have a hard time finding it, especially in a really good shade. Maybe I need to just order it :)

      Thanks:) Ordering definitely comes with surprises:))) Not always good, but I got lucky this time.
