The Red Fabrics

I found this pattern in 2014 and had been searching for the right combination of fabrics.

The Red linen was a fabric that I had in my stash for quite a while waiting for the right garment. The print was also in the stash waiting for the perfect design. This pattern seemed the answer , except the print was a little short so I needed to look for a complimentary color for the border strip on my shopping expedition . While searching I found the additional fabrics and wanted another border fabric as I thought it would add impact.

This is a great pattern to make, it was easy and for the blue combination I added cotton voile between the layers so that the fabric prints were not visible through the other side. The red combination is very dressy on the red side I feel and very casual on the print these will be great dresses for travel.

Happy Sewing

  2. What an interesting dress – I passed the pattern up, but you have opened my eyes to a myriad possibilities :). I like both of your versions and the fact that each dress is really two!
