Friday evening dress
I started sewing this dress on a Friday evening , while waiting for Dan to come home from work, and finished it the next day.
I followed the same pattern as for my "ruffles and leaves" dress but the outcome is so much different.
As fabrics I used black lace and red cotton.
I don't have many black or white garments in my closet, I prefer color, but I was seduced by the pattern of this black lace and bought all the fabric left in the warehouse: almost 4 yd. ( stay tuned for another lace dress coming up :) )
I cinched it with a red sash (same cotton fabric as the lining) tied up with a bow at the back.
The black, particularly the black lace, makes the dress look classy and the red lining highlights the lace's pattern.
I'm dressed up for a cocktail party.
A dry martini, anybody?
