Red Cocktail Dress with sparkling stones

Added May 3, 2016

Randstad, Nether...






This Red Cocktail Dress is my final make for KNIPster 2016 and inspired by a beautiful red Calvin Klein Cocktail Dress that Gwyneth Paltrow was wearing. The cocktail dress was introduced by Dior in the 40s of the last century. Typical for this type of short dress is that is simple, clean and less details. In former days it used to be black but nowadays it can have any color and made of all kind of fabrics. The skirt of this dress has on one side an insert to give it an unique asymmetrical feature. The sleeves have sophisticated 7/8 length. The neckline and sleeve hems are finished with sparkling red and translucent colored stones. The matching clutch is fully lined on the inside and has a pocket for a mobile phone and a loop with a carabiner. On the front there is a pentagonal star pattern using the shadow folding technique.
