Last 2019 Post - Oh the Red Dress!

This is my last post of the year!  
Red is a great color to end the year on, right!!!

Who remembers my red floral print duster? 
Yes! 
The one I refashioned by adding the red linen blend bands? 
Yep, that one!



Well, it just so happens that I had just enough of the band fabric left over to make a red dress! I love red dresses! Ok, Ok...I love red! 😍



I used view B of McCall's 7189 - which has now become one of my TNTs.  I really love wearing princess seam cuts, but this one has a slight curved hem. And it looks wonderful with the duster and on it's on! I'm in love!



My alterations were my usual...I enlarged the waist by about 1 inch and made the sleeves my favorite elbow length!  

I love the fit and "slightly" flare silhouette of this pattern as well as the slightly curved hem.  Because of the curve, I did a narrow top-stitched hem.
My oldest daughter took the photos and thought my red shoes would look better, but I didn't agree and wore black pumps.  Not sure I will wear red shoes with it...don't want too much red all at once!










I also love the fit and "kinda" flare silhouette of this pattern.





I'm glad I had enough of the linen blend that I purchased from Vogue Fabrics left...less wrinkles, right? 
😏  
I will definitely make it again...maybe in a ponte or a wool blend!


I'm looking forward to wearing it this spring. It's going to look and feel great with the duster.

Red is a neutral, right? 😍






I wish you and your families a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

I'm looking forward to continuing to connect with you in 2020!

Happy Endless Sewing!
