Red and Black

I am so pleased with the progress I am making on the red and black dress. The wool gabardine is such a joy to sew with; the red I am using is what I call "my red". It is warm red color, reds with blue undertones do not suit me as well. It is a tomato red.

I have sewn the front pieces together which includes front pocket. I topstiched black piping onto the edge of the pocket. I think it will prove to be a nice design touch with the black wool gabardine yoke. Both pieces were purchased over two years ago from Fabric.mart.

More information later.


  1. Isn't it fun to sew good fabrics and natural fibers? I'm waiting to see the finished dress.

  2. It is so exciting when a project comes together as you had hoped!! Actually, it sounds like the dress is coming along even better!!
