Red Darted Dress

As from the first sight I was sure I would make the dress, my main thoughts while sewing were about the question how many red dresses a woman needs :-) The sewing was pretty quick, it took me two days including coffee breaks and looking through posts in the Internet :-) I like the dress very much because it gives the feeling that I look exactly as I think I look. The pattern has wonderful fitting, besides, thanking to my fabric, all those seams are not very seen and just emphasize the silhouette.
The pattern surely has some vintage note.
My sewing tips here concern only sewing the collar as my fabric is a little different from the suggested.
All the jewellery was made by myself, too.

Material Notes

Double sided knits with red suede side which I chose as the right. The fabric is very beautiful and well draping indeed.

    Oh my goodness, you look amazing. I loved that pattern when I first saw it, I love it even more now. You probably need very many red dresses :)

      I am not sure I need any dresses at all aAs the main problem with the dresses is where to save them as the wardrobe is not stretching:-) Thank you very much for the wonderful compliments!
