Pink & Red & Plaid

Added Feb 1, 2010

So here is my entry for the Pink & Red contest. I used red and pink plaid fabric.

When I was making this dress I was laughing so much cos it was not turning out how I imagined it would look. I thought it looked like a doll’s dress for a giant and would be completely unwearable but I made the neckline ruffles a bit smaller and now I actually really like this dress!

I modified Burda pattern 7831 for the top part and then added a full circle skirt.

I kind of did this last minute and I worked all weekend so I had no time to get someone to take pics so I apolgise for my self-taken ones! I will put up better ones when I get some.

There is some top stitching along the neckline and the edges of the ruffles are done with tiny zigzags in red thread.

Update May 11, 2010: More (better) pics added.

Material Notes

Pink, red and black plaid mystery fabric that wrinkles in about 5 seconds, some buttons I found (I originally wanted to use some pink buttons I have somewhere but I couldn’t find them after lots of looking but then luckily I found these black and grey ones)

    Congrats on making something for the challenge in time! Very pretty dress! It looks a little dirndl-ish with the wide skirt and the plaids and all. I like it!

    I love your dress and I wouldn’t agree with you about this being a dress doll for a giant! You look great in it!

    I like the way you’ve interpreted the pink en red. Many have used 2 fabrics or added a waistband ithe other colour but you’ve taken the colours in one plaid fabric, good choise. Love the collar and sleeves, so cute.

    This is really cute! The plaid is really effective in the skirt.
