I’ve decided to start entering a few sewing/ dressmaking competitions just to push myself to work a little quicker and to a better standard. My problem though was finding some! After much googling, I’ve decided to enter the Pattern Review Little Red Dress Contest.
It started a couple of weeks ago and ends on Tuesday and typically I’ve left it to the last minute! It requires you to make a little red dress in honour of the American Heart Association. (And yes I’m not American but the 1st prize is a gift certificate for this awesome vintage pattern website!). You have to then upload picture of your creation and post them on the competition website and other people then vote!
So I ended up drafting a new pattern from scratch and found this gorgeous red fabric to use and voilá!
The back has a braided strap detail with was far more hassle than it was worth. It looks kinda cool but it’s definitely put me off doing that technique again in future!
