A Touch Of Red

This is a great pattern for a top and a even greater pattern for a dress. I like the raglan sleeve and the exaggerated v neck band that emphasizes the figure.

I used stretch lace combine with stretch polyester/knit. I wanted a tall dress so I used a long separating zipper in the middle to create a focal point. The dress is very attractive without being vulgar…it just creates the right sexy appeal.

    Your dress looks great on you!!! I’ve made this top a couple of times, but I have such an issue with getting the V point perfect. I like the addition of the zipper.

    Fab dress daina, I love the red and blacks as it’s very Dramatic and the front zip just gives it a bit more sass. Looking lovely x
