I’ve been thinking about making this dress since a saw it last year in a mode magazine. I love the shape and the contrast between red and dark grey.
I has a zipper in the side and 2 buttons on the back of the collar. The back is entirely grey.
I made the pattern myself, based on other dresses I have. I found the fabrics on the market so I don’t know what it is. The red one is really light and the grey one is stretch.
For the jacket I used a pattern from the 5th “Tendance couture” magazine. I used the same fabrics as for the dress: red on the cuffs, grey for the rest.
