#thelittlereddressproject:Update 2

Well, I think I’ve found the pattern for my LRD in regarding to #thelittlereddressproject …. Cue the drumroll everyone … meet Alix, the new pattern from By Hand London. 

Alix is only available in PDF form, so I’m going to have to get my skates on if I want it printed out by a print shop (i.e. I can’t be bothered sticking numerous amounts of A4 pages together!) buts it’s such a me dress! I love the long length as well as the short length so at the moment I’m toying with the final chosen length! 

The Alix is looking gorgeous in red 😍

Long version of Alix

Ohhhh which one!?!? Because I’m short, I think having it just below the knees will suit me best and I’m pretty sure if all goes well I might even do the long version!

“Light to medium weight wovens will bring out the best in Alix – cotton lawn, voile, chambray, annel, double gauze, cotton silk, sandwashed silk, silk noil, wool crêpe, viscose crêpe, rayon and cupro.” 

Oooooh – cotton lawn? Chambray? Silk? Crêpe? 

Which should I choose? 

I think 💭 Alix will look stunning in red silk … but I haven’t worked with silk before – eeeek! 

What is sand washed silk? Silk noil? That’s something I’ll have too look up and see if it’s a viable option x

Until next time
