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