Red Sheath Dress

I ordered this pattern (Butterick 2952) a few weeks ago, along with another vintage Butterick pattern (my first vintage patterns!), and sewed View B last weekend.

The fit isn’t perfect, but I’m happy with it. I think I’m addicted to red clothing at the moment… but it isn’t too bad yet, this is only my second red dress 🙂

More pictures and info on the project on my blog.

    Love the dress — the color looks great on you. No wonder you love red. Make any adjustments on your next version of this dress. The length is perfect. The belt cinches the wait perfectly.
