I absolutely adored this dress for years. It’s comfy, casual jersey cotton but has a fuller skirt, ¾ length sleeves and tailored princess seams, so it always felt a little fancier. I could wear it to class or wear it to the couch when I had a cold and it always felt right. I thought little black dresses were magic until I wore this little red dress.
Sadly, nothing can last forever – especially jersey cotton. The bright red colour is now faded, the soft and comfortable t-shirt material is getting thin and distorted, and the stains just won’t come out anymore. The dress hasn’t been fit to wear outside the house without a sweater I’m committed to keeping on for a couple of winters now. It’s almost time to say goodbye, but not before one last hurrah! So here she is, my favourite red dress, in all her aging glory.
