Red-Carpet-Dress for Christmas Party 2012

Added Jan 31, 2013

by peipe

Allschwil, Switz...






For last christmas I needed a “Red-Carpet-Dress” – the theme of our work christmas party. I looked through my old Burda magazines and found the perfect pattern in 12/2008. Then I also found immediately the perfect fabric, a duchesse satin (silk) and was able to finish the project in no time.
When I wore the dress that evening I got a lot of compliments and felt comfortable wearing it.

Material Notes

duchess silk-satin, zipper




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Bridal, Evening Wear

      Thank you. I love that shade of red as it is a bit darker than fire red. Gracias.

    I made this dress in the sleeveless version and loved wearing it (mine was green). The red looks great in this – lovely dress!

      Thank you – and I just looked at your dress… I decided for the sleeve-version because of wintertime (we even had snow that night) and I spared a “shoulder-cover”.
      Thank you!

      Thank you Mary Athey. I felt good and comfortable wearing the dress – not at all like a masquerade, if you know what I mean.

      Danke kihli – das Kleid hat wirklich Effekt-Faktor und dabei ist es relativ einfach zu nähen. Zwar viele Schnitteile aber ungefüttert. Nun fehlt mir nur noch der “Oscar” ;)

      Thank you Kisses – I love that red, it’s not “fire-red” but a litte bit darker and it says “here I am”…
