Pink & Red - Roses are Red

Added Feb 1, 2010

Guelph, Canada






This is a pink and red dress I made for the pink and red contest!

I don’t really like pink and red together so it was a challenge to find shades and textures that went together nicely but I think it turned out quite well- it was a fun challenge!

I’ve also included a picture of the embroidery that I did on the side by the zipper (it was my first time!)

Modeled (like all my designs) by my sister Rhiannon :)

Material Notes

silky pink top
sheer red bottom

    This is so sweet! I really like the style of the dress and I think this shades of red and pink go so well together. I’m very jealous! I want to own that dress ;o)

    I’m really impressed with your ability to create those cute dresses without a pattern…you’ve got talent honey!

    Very cute and great job on drapery. I can see that you used my idea with the balloons for the pics

    I also don’t think red and pink usually go so well together but this looks great! It is perfect with that belt. I love the pics too.
