Description

I had the super-red jersey since a very long time and didn´t really know, what to do… I saw a very expensive designer dress and thought “I can do it by myself” and this is the result, my boyfriend´s grandpa made me some compliments!
I basicalle used a pattern for a shirt with raglan sleeves, made it longer, the collar ist just a square.
I had some problems with the collar, it was to big and had no stiffness, with interface it had too much stiffness, but I solved it, while using some elastic ribbon and now I´m quite happy with it!
for the belt and the little thing on the collar (I don´t know how to name it…) I used the red jersey too and sewed white lace on it, on the belt I also formed a bow and sewed a blck button on it
(please forgive, I´m not a native english speaker…)

    Honey your English is just fine. When I did my military tour in Germany (Wurzburg and Kitzingen) my German was chopped all to pieces. I can only remember….umm not much. And your dress is very red and very cute. I like it. A woman in red…she needs no words spoken.
