Simplicity 2444: the ruby dress

A Burns’ night supper, some red taffeta in my stash and Simplicity 2444 in my unmade pattern pile; mix the three and what do you get a ruby dress.  I was pretty pleased with the result, but I made a really silly mistake.  I took half and inch from the shoulders rather than shortening the bodice, which meant the waist line rose and made everything a little tight!  Still it encourages me to sit up nice and straight.  More details on my blog ( – the link doesn’t seem to be working).
