Hi there! Gillian here, with a round up of Red October dresses!
The sewing event so nice, we logo’d it twice!
I dreamed up this first logo as soon as the monthy theme was dreamed up (on Twitter, as these things always are!) … but pretty soon we starting planning a whole year of colour themes, so Mari from Disparate Disciplines and I made a second logo that can be adapted through the year!
We had LOADS of people join the sewalong by sewing something red and posting it in the Flickr group, so without further ado, here is the first post of our roundup: Dresses!

So many gorgeous dresses! Plus, another beautiful dress blogged here.
Thread Carefully made up not, one, not two, but three beautiful dresses…
But that’s not all, my friends… Look, look, look! The fabulous Roisin admits that she rarely “joins in” organised sewing challenges, but oh boy, did she rock Red October! Look at the FOUR red frocks she churned out this month!
I’m so impressed with these Red October dresses! There’s a wide range of styles, from casual knits to retro chic, but everyone looks great!
Many people mentioned during the month that they are motivated to add more red to their wardrobe, and so am I! One thing I notice is that a lot of the outfits above are styled with red or black accessories. What colours do you like to wear with red? Do you go for basic neutrals like white, black or navy, or brights like pink, turquoise or yellow?
