More fabric for another dress.

I have my next pattern and fabric lined up to make another summer dress, I am making it in this red 100% cotton and will be following the instructions for the green view on the pattern, it will probably be trimmed with some nice white trim along the waistline and hem. I will be interlining it as I love the way it makes the dress feel and gives a much better drape to the fabric.  

The pattern is simplicity 2588, I got it over the internet in the sale at 50% off.  
I will be making a muslin as it made such a difference to the first dress I made, hopefully I will be starting this dress within the next week or so. 

I have been looking for some shoes to match the dress in my previous post, once I have found the right pair I will try the dress on and have a photo taken and post pictures. I also bought a blue bolero cardigan that looks lovely with this dress, just perfect for those windy days.

Happy sewing, until next time!
