This beautiful red dress is great for any dressy occasion such as dinner out, weddings, or special evening events. Made with Vogue pattern #1542 it is for average level sewists.
The front of the dress has beautiful hand made flower and cording details. These are not hard to make, don't let them intimidate you! Details are hand stitched to the front of the dress.
Make cording by cutting strips of bias fabric 1 1/4" wide. Stitch with right sides together, then turn. Sew leaves for flowers as per pattern directions, with right sides together then turn. Hand assemble the flower leaves, stitching them together with needle and thread. Add the cording loops across the front of the dress and secure with hand stitches.
