Dizzy Plaid Red Dress

IMG_9687I revisited Advance #4598 for this one. And once again I was baffled by the collar instructions. But, instead of just sewing down the middle and skipping the buttons, I actually took the time to make the buttons and buttonholes.

The Facts

Fabric: Bought at Stone Mountain & Daughter
Pattern: Advance #4598
First worn: December 2009
Wear again? Totally. I love this dress style and have been a bit obsessed with buying patterns that are basically the same thing.

  1. LOVE this fabric! I do the same thing with dress patterns; I have a whole whack of them in the same, slightly varied style. :^)

  2. such great fabric!! thats a terrific belt too

  3. what kind of cotton is this? I am always amazed how people are able to find great fashion cotton to work with. So far, I sew primarily with quilting cotton, but i know that it is not the right kind for garment sewing and it wrinkles so much

  4. I totally want this dress, but I suuuuuuck at patterns. I can’t even make an apron! (which I want/need) :(
