DID IT MYSELF: Red Ladylike Dress

DSC_0005

Hello Everyone!

While it’s a popular saying that every woman should have a little black dress in her closet, I would extend it to “every woman should have a little black dress and a red ladylike dress. Really, having such dress in my closet helps BIG time: a date night? I will put on my red dress and wow the man. Need extra confidence boost at work? Let’s grab that red dress of mine and get things done! Dinner with friends in the city? Okay, where is my red ladylike dress? And the list goes on and on – really these dresses are so versatile, that I find an occasion to wear it several times a month (and always look fabulous, by the way)!

As this dress is made from my own drafted pattern, I will not be able to give my comments about it (because, well, I would probably rate my pattern 10/10 – no objectivity here 😀 ), however, this dress uses one tutorial I posted earlier –  HOW TO SEW: half circle skirt to any dress, please feel free to check it!

Best regards,

Julie

For the hemline, I overlock the edge of the fabric (to avoid it from falling apart), fold it and simply stitch on top – I find this technique to be the best way to hem the half or full circle skirts.

The neckline is finished using techniques I talked about on my blog post for favourite dress and my basic techniques for dresses video

I love adding half circle skirts to my dresses – you can check a tutorial on that in my recent blog post.
