Ruby Red Dress

Ah, now there is a story behind this dress. Not a very long one, but a story all the same.
I actually made this dress for someone, as well as the belt, and at the last minute just thought 'screw it!' and kept it for myself. I am a horrible person.

But in fact I am rather elated with this decision. I didn't really have an all red dress and have decided I am no longer fearful of the colour. Red and I have had an odd relationship over the years.

I used my basic bodice and skirt blocks, but only made the skirt a half circle. I think it works quite nicely ;)

I also made the headscarf thingy and the belt!
