DIY Alice and Olivia Inspired Red Dress


If you haven’t already invested in McCall’s Pattern M6886, whatcha ya waiting for?

Even my novice of seamstresses are making this dress and they are looking FABULOUS.

It’s no surprise I use it time and time again with no fear,
this classic silhouette is a staple in the fashion world,
so when I spotted a similar red dress in Alice and Olivia’s prefall collection – I knew I needed to recreate this look.

The problem?

Fabric. Finding a close resemblance can be tricky but I have to say,
I SERIOUSLY lucked out when I was hunting for my next project at Hancock Fabric stores month,
because I found the perfect fabric HERE.
– pinch me –

When you put the two together, add my favorite Coat Vest from October – it’s a match made in heaven.

To recreate this look, here’s what you need:

Hope this inspires your next outfit, especially as it’s so perfect this holiday season!

Have a glamorous day and stay safe.

    Wow! Gorgeous on you and as is! I don’t know how to sew but my 9 yr. old daughter asked for a sewing machine and to learn how to sew for Christmas. I’m excited about learning along with her.

    Other than a quilt, I haven’t sewn since I made my high school graduation dress (26 years ago), but you have me wanting to pull out the sewing machine. This is a BEAUTIFUL dress, and your seamstress skills are impeccable.
