Hot! MTL: Doing the Two-Step Dress

What can I say? I like red dresses.Mtl-twostepjpg

Original Inspiration



  • Red piping should be used at the hemline, bodice wrap-around and armholes.
  • If you want a look truer to the original, you can modify the wrap pieces to provide more of a princess neckline.

  1. That is way cute! Added to my pattern wish list.

  2. I like the pattern better than the original dress. I wish we had a large supply of patterns over here…

  3. Oh that is similar to this dress on folksy:
    which I was wondering if you would feature :)

  4. I’m keeping a file of all the MTL dresses that I want to make, I can’t wait to get stuck into them!!! :)

  5. I’m thinking of using piping similar to this in a dress I want to make but I’ve never done it before. Any advice?
