Rockin’ Red Dress for Christmas

I made a dress!  I spent many months working on this dress.  I saw the pattern on Ravelry and ordered the magazine.  I special ordered the yarn from Hobby Lobby so that I would have enough in the same dye lot.

This is the most involved project I have ever made.

I made this dress to wear for Christmas (2014).  I finished with plenty of time.  I even wore it to a friend’s wedding in January in Seattle!  The yarn is I Love this Cotton from Hobby Lobby.  It is a heavy dress, and while it is short sleaves, it is quite warm, so I only wear in the cooler (and cold) months.
