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 (http://magscreativemeanderings.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/the-ruby-dress-simplcity-2444.html – the link doesn’t seem to be working).
