Red Autumn Love Finished

I finished the dress I had started for my sister, the one I found on Nette's blog, right here.
The pattern needed adjustments, but they were easy to make. Basically, I modified it to be larger, for a size 40.

Other than that, I added some detail to the front curved seam and also made the straps overlap at the back.

The corduroy is a great fabric for this pattern, it's very comfy and contributes to the "light & easy" mood of the dress.

So, thank you Nette for a great pattern!


  1. Very cute! I love the little trim detail. It's fun to sew for family isn't it?
