Red Quilted Taffeta--done!

This dress was whipped up in a few days to be worn for Christmas. I stumbled across this dress a few months ago, and decided to use up fabric from the stash.


Zac Posen Quilted Silk Taffeta Mini from Saks Fifth Avenue (no longer available, pics here)
The pattern was basically draped. I cut out the bodice bigger than it should be, and drew horizontal lines with tailor's chalk, ironed those lines in a crease, and sewed them. I repeated vertically, and pressed the pintucks. Then I pinned it to my dress form and put in darts.

I basically made up the sleeves and skirt, too. I'm pretty happy with the way this dress turned out, overall. :)
