The Little Red Dress, Butterick 5640 DIY

Today is about my little RED DRESS that almost wasn't.  I like red somewhat, but not as much as I love yellow.  For weeks I had been contemplating this Butterick pattern and yet I had not found the right color or fabric for the project.  Last week I had come to the resolve that I would make the pattern, but what type of fabric to make it in was my delima.

I knew I had some broadcloth, but it was that dreadful red color that I wanted to use for something else.  I actually wanted the fuchsia colored eyelet from the pattern cover.  I have been looking for this color eyelet for a while and for some reason could not find the right shade (Bubble gum pink is not fuchsia).  So, after tossing the red idea around a few times, this is what came out of the "Red" rubble.

This was a great pattern and the dress turned out better than I had hoped.  I wore my strap up sandals today because I want to get every little bit of Summer.  I'm not a big fan of cold weather, so get out and enjoy the sun!!!  LOLPOH
