Little Red Dress Contest

I finally finished my dress for's little red dress contest!  I made McCall's 6518.
For a little something extra, I beaded the ruffles.  It ended up being a major undertaking, but I think it was worth it!

This was my first saddlestitch.  Thanks to youtube, I figured it out although I think if I ever do this type of hem again, I'll make the stitches smaller.

You can see my review of the pattern here.


  1. Your dress is fabulous! I love the embellishment.
