Deville’s in a Red Dress

Deville's and a red dress.


Yesterday we dropped in on Deville’s Pad ‘Hot Rods from Hell’. Wow, what an event! There are a bunch of photos of the day on Paul’s site.

For the girls: the dress was hot off the (steam) press, hemming finished only minutes before jumping into Paul’s Chevy pickup to hit Deville’s. It’s a combination of Butterick 5455 – I love the pleated bodice and v-neck – and a skirt from a trusty vintage pattern. The price – embarassingly – $10 worth of Textile Traders stretch poplin, plus a couple of bucks for the invisible zip. I made another version of this dress in a floral cotton sateen, with piping. This version (B) much faster without the fiddling about!
