Just read deadline has been extended, after I have rushed to get this finished today ;). Well when I say rushed it takes about an hour to make, all done on the overlocker. Fabric was from Fabworks about 2 years ago, I got it in blue and green as well and made the same dress straight away but somehow never got round to the red.
Now have I got time to do something with the red velvet? perhaps a  :frock:
@Iminei I do love a bit of snoopy, that's were my signature comes from.

I need your opinions ladies as tempus fugit ever closer to the end of the month.
I have finished quilting the white areas, tomorrow I'll start on the Red but I need to know this in advance so please can I have your opinions on the Binding choice please

This is Binding option A ....


                         
                         
And this is Binding option B (if I have enough of it )



The Red, White and Black patterned fabric is the backing fabric.

Me too.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Gawd,  :\

I hope I can find some ... I have some but probably not enough for all the binding.

@Iminei I like the backing fabric could you use this as the binding? I am not a quilter so no idea if this is the done thing. Feel free to slap me down with a  :fish:

I'd go for the light red too, mainly because, although I like the dark binding, it introduces an extra colour which isn't present in the main quilt. :S

Yes You can use the backing fabric but I think, on this occasion, that it would make the front look mucky...
Thank you for your suggestion though.

Panic Over..... Just found a 15" x 70" chunk of it upstairs phew!  ><

And I'm veering towards the light red myself now...
No sewing this weekend I think as Imselfs race to Calais has been cancelled because of the forecasted weather!

I have to agree with the lighter red.  The dark red is too jarring.

At last I managed to grab a bit of time. The red dress is part way there. The collar is ready to go on but doesn't seem to match the neckline in length :devil: I reduced the seam allowances to 8mm and have sewn at this width very carefully so not sure what's going on. It doesn't help that I've gone down with a streaming cold (again). Today is a babysitting day so might try again tonight. The fabric frays like mad so reducing the seam allowances wasn't such a clever plan :angry:  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
