This dress was supposed to be all red but I had to change the collar to a black velvet ribbon when I fell in love with a picture of Zooey Deschanel wearing a black&red dress :)
It was a hard project as the silk is very slippery. I think I will go back to cotton for a while.
The project is based on a Burdastyle pattern but I altered it A LOT :)
