As promised, I am debuting my first ever fully homemade dress! And, my brand new blog that will chronicle all my sewing adventures and tutorials!
When I got into sewing and making accessories, I knew I wanted a “brand”. Not because I ever expect to sell my stuff, but just to make it seem more legit. I wanted to incorporate being a redhead in there somehow, and after going back and forth with the hubby and my sister, I came up with Redhead Couture. It basically means redhead creations.
I love pockets so much!
And since my dress was very 50’s in silhouette, I HAD to do a bouffant, red lips and a cat eye! I didn’t want to add a necklace because I thought that would be too busy with the neckline being rather a show-piece as it is(hubby has commented on how much he likes the neckline at least 100 times since I finished the dress). I did end up slipping on a simple pearl(plastic pearl) bracelet on my way out the door which complements the look very well.
I might use this dress at Halloween, adding a white pinafore over the dress and keeping the ruby shoes. And I’ll carry Aspen around in a basket.
What do you think of my new dress?
