lovely red summer dress

Added Jul 19, 2010

Zuid Holland, Ne...






I wanted to make a summer dress. I got a red cotton and desided it would be perfect for the dress i had in mind. Also i’ve embroidered the left front part with flowers. The bodice is a double bodice so the neck line stays in its shape and it also gives some support to the bust. One small problem, i gained some weight.. i think it is from the barbeques and icecreams. Next time i make a summer dress i make it a size bigger. Luckely i’ve worrn it already a few times. ( it also looks great with leggings and a short jacket in autumn)

Material Notes

100% cotton




Garment Type
Beach, Casual, Classic, Other, Romantic

    thanks everybody for all the nice comments! @MrsMG08: the embroidery is done with the machine.

    very classic. Gorgeous. I love the embroidery. Did you do it by hand or with a machine?

      hi, sorry i didn’t see your question earlier. The pattern is a bit of me and a bit of burda magazine. I’ve used a burda magazine pattern for the bust part. ps thanks.
