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.
