As soon as I saw this emerald wool suiting, I knew it was destined for my little blue-eyed redhead.
I just love this dress. It's made from wool suiting and I used real glass beads that I purchased in the fabric district in NYC for $1 a piece. They contain tiny little holes on each side of beads that you can loop thread through.
For the pattern, I altered the perfect dress to make it more fitted throughout the torso and flare at the knee. My only regret is that the lining puckered slightly during final alternations. Other than that, I love it!
