I wanted a red dress. At first, I didnt think I could pull off such a bright color, but I wore it to an election results party, and people really liked it.
This is pretty text book to the original pattern, even the placement of the gathers. I did forget to put pleats on the pockets before I sewed them on, but Ill let that slide.
I took these buttons from an old suit I made (That I never wore) and used them on this. They are not vintage, but a great candy like fit.
