So I was watching ‘How I met your Mother’ Season 5, episode 20 when I saw the character Robin Scherbatsky wearing a red number that sparked a reaction in the left side of my brain. I ran into my sewing room flicking through my patterns and low-and-behold there it was; I had the exact pattern of the dress she was wearing! A Tracy Reese creation for vogue #V1190. Challenge accepted.
I got to it, and here is my version of this lovely dress pattern. I recommend giving it a crack. I have attached a few pics that I took of my TV with the character Robin wearing the Tracy Reese dress. I realise on reflection that they look a bit stalker-ish.
Somehow I think my dress might have cost a lil’ bit less than Miss Scherbatsy’s.
