I'm under a 'no fabric buying in 2012' geas. And I don't have any red fabric in my stash that was asking to be sewed up at the moment (except some wool for a 1930s swimsuit, and thats a whole 'nother issue). So my contribution to Valentines red is a dress with just a bit of red in the print - seasonal without being overpowering.
The dress is made from an original 1931 pattern, out of a silk chiffon.
I'll be blogging about it in a few days, and wore it to Napier's annual Art Deco Weekend: http://thedreamstress.com/2012/02/art-deco-weekend-roundup/
