Red Soirée Dress - Simplicity 2176

This is the second blog post that was submitted to the Queen of the Castle magazine. I have to say I really enjoyed writing the article and pretending to be a tutor.

my previous post, then you know how easy it is to start and complete a sewing project.  I would consider myself an
intermediate fashion sewista!  I’m learning all the sewing foundations and tricks through sewing blogs. If you need inspiration then you have to hit to spots that offer it. No better way to get the creative juice flowing than daydreaming reading these hypnotic
blogs. You can find inspiration just about anywhere – keep an open mind. I love to surf
pinterest (My Pinterest), visit designer websites, and even garden photos and paints charts.

Project 2 is a beautiful dress that I wanted to enter into a red dress competition. This post does not contain step by step instructions. It would be way easier for you to follow the instructions that come with your pattern.
 Iron your pattern before you cut and trace every marking even if you think you don’t need it. You might want to read the instructions first as well. This I have found very helpful.
