The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

For the record, I did get this done in time for the Make this Look Challenge - but I wasn't thrilled with the result, had a hard time getting photos in the dismal weather and also got sick - so I never managed to get it into a blog post.

This is a copy of Modcloth's Red Like Me - and I chose to use a red wool crepe for it. Unfortunately, I didn't think to line it and the fabric is a little itchy. On the other hand, this dress gives me the perfect excuse to wear a beautiful full length silk slip that my husband gave me as a present last year.

Total cost: $26 in fabric and one button. I will likely wear it, but with a black cardigan as this just feels like too much red for me. I used to wear a lot of red, but now I realize that I don't love it as a single unbroken colour on me. Live and learn.

Hi Megan, you look great in Red! But probably will look just as great with a black cardigan. Hope your feeling better soon.
