Project #51 – Winter Wool Dress

Today I attended a chili cook-off organized by some friends. It’s been too cold to wear most of my dresses, so I made a fiery red wool dress that would do a better job at holding up to the winter chill. Plus, I could hope that the color would match any chili that I spilled on it. The hemline is a little shorter than usual, but it’s a party dress, right?

The pattern is 5260, but I exchanged the neckline facings for a narrow hem, and changed the V-neck for a scoop-neck. The fabric is a wool knit from Fabric Mart. The wool is high quality so the dress itself is not itchy, even if you go without a slip.

Clark’s chili took second place out of 9 chilies, so congratulations to him!
