It's Feb. 1 - National Wear Red Day - a day to wear red to show support for women's heart disease awareness. Are you wearing red today?
Today I'll wear red, but not a red dress as I'll be sitting all day at a seminar.
And if I were to wear a red dress it probably wouldn't be this sizzling little number. It just wouldn't be too appropriate for the office you know what I mean?
But if I had a hot date tonight, and this puppy still fit, you better believe I'd be wearing it.
I remember the last, and only time, I wore this dress. The year was 1993 and the place was a singles Christmas party/dance. I wasn't exactly single as the guy I was dating was friends with the woman who organized the extremely popular annual dance. That's how I received an invite.
Just look at the back of this thing! I sewed it from a deep burgundy stretch crushed velvet so it hugged in the right places yet allowed the fishtail hem to sway when walking or dancing.
The pattern used was a McCall's NY NY - number 6574. I sure miss those old NY NY patterns from McCall's - there were some great designs produced.
This was a dress designed for flirting...and I'll admit I did do a bit of that while wearing this princess seamed beauty. Wouldn't you?
