Red Wool

An exercise in fabric economy.

This dress was made from a wool reminant that was 55" x 77", and a really small reminant of plaid. Then I decided that I wanted to do decorative stitching on all of the seams. I recall wishing I had not decided this, about half way through actually doing it; but by then I was comitted, and finished anyway. This is a fairly common occurence.

One of these days, I will dig up the cutting diagram for this one, because it was cool, and really sneaky, and may be useful to others.

Update: Diagram Added!
