Red "Paris" dress for the cold season

Added Oct 9, 2011

Aylesbury, Unite...






Did anyone say a Christmas party?

Then red would be best, is it not the colour that made a big re-entrance this autumn?

Long before I discovered that Burda magazine will focus the next issue (November 2011) on fabulous red dresses, I decided to reuse pattern 119 in issue 8/2011 (Paris is everywhere) with a wool fabric this time.

The fabric I chose is really thick and difficult to manipulate round neckline, but I did my best and I made a dress so warm and wearable, that I fell in love with.

Worn with a selection of “New Look” metal belts, “New Look” bag and Kate Kuba boots.

Fabulous pattern! I cannot add the pattern I used as this has not been preloaded on the website.

Material Notes

100% red wool fabric at £8.50/m, invisible zipper




Fall, Winter
Garment Type

      You are too kind. After going through all colours and shades in the world, I came back to red & black (not necessarily together)
