Red dress for a red day - Vestido rojo para un día rojo

Added Mar 29, 2012

Madrid, Spain






As usually, I drafted the pattern, the simplest and easiest one. The only interesting thing is the elastic cord I used as bias tape, and the big zipper. A really fast and easy dress to do, tomorrow I’ll wear as casual friday at the office ;-)).

I’m dying to wear it next week in my strolls through NYC!!!

Material Notes

Thick cotton-polyester knitting (Spanish call it Punto Roma), zipper, elastic cord bias.

      Sí, sí que la maternidad no te reste tiempo de lo “importante” ;-))

      PD: La forma globo siempre es muy socorrida.

      I’m amazed, I’d better check the “enviroment” for my next project…. ;-))

      I am sorry to say that the tin is made in Korea, the impact of globalization!!
