The (not quite red) dress

I made this dress as a part of Sonia’s Cose Conmigo, and now it is finally finished in a big delay.

As I didn’t know if a slim pencil skirt would work for me, I turned it into an A-line skirt, which was fairly easy to do. I love A-line skirts!

I used cotton fabric for the dress, which was probably not the best idea as it wrinkles a lot, but it feels very comfortable, so that I only lined the skirt (with bright pink lining fabric).

    This is a lovely dress! I love how you changed the skirt, I wouldn’t have thought it looked so good. Might try that one as the bodice is so nice. This colour suits you very well, you look very pretty with that dress.

    Beautiful dress. The color works so well with your features – better than a true red would have.
