It took almost more time to figure out how to match pink & red than to sew the dress. I decided to add a black trimming et voilà….. a very intense sewing weekend later, I come up with the red&pink&black evening gown. The pattern is a 1957-vintage-pattern from Butterick (B4513). The red silk is from Ikea (otherwise the dress would have ruined me).
