My entry into the Tessuti Awards. Criteria: Red or Black Taffeta bought from Tessuti, dress suitable for dressy event or formal, knee length.
I’m really kicking myself for not making enough time on this project. I had planned on making my own design/pattern but I had another commitment that took more time than I would have liked! I had to make a new dress for an RnR weekender + pants & top. (Did I really need another dress, will I ever learn?)
Dress made from vintage Simplicity 1944. (1950’s pattern)
If you were to use any trimmings, the colour had to be the same as the fabric. I made piping around the waist and collar. Fully lined.
Not holding my breathe on this comp, next year will plan ahead…famous last words!
2 mtrs Taffeta
Lace for the collar and band
