Red-Black Cotton Dress

Added Dec 4, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I love sewing with this kind of cotton fabric and have used it for several garments. I thought black and red were nice together, and chose to use the red for the upper part. This style is one of my favorite pattern and I have used the pattern #114 Burda 05/2009 several times. The dress has rubberband around the neck and at the end of the sleeves, and a little tie in the waist.
I’ve made a Black&White dress and a Shiny dress earlier if you like to see them :)

Material Notes

    Very cute. Its certainly one of my favorite materials to work with. I like the play of color blocking. Nice pattern.

    What a nice Dress, And I love the other 2 also, particularly the black/White one. One question though, why did you call it the red/black dress , on my Computer it looks Grey/pink, or am I going colour blind?

      Thanks Brigitte! I’m sure you will love this style too :)
      I usually cut the skirt on bias and then it’s easier to move..
