Franklin Habit Dolores #17 Drop Dead Red Kit by Nicole Reeves includes the PDF pattern download and all the Valley Yarns Valley Superwash Sport yarn in Crimson needed to knit this stunning gown for Dolores. Also included are a pair of heart shaped sunglasses (styles vary—we will choose for you) and a Dolores branded emery board. Note: Dolores doll is not included with outfit kit. Lace and cable pattern is both written and charted.

A celebrity needs always to look her best–never more than when she’s walking a red carpet during awards season. Even in that rare year when she’s not nominated in ten or twelve major categories, Dolores can’t avoid the spotlights or the paparazzi. For her upcoming appearance at the Woollen Globes, she called upon noted designer Nicole Winona Reeves. “I have inherent va-va-voom,” she said. “What I need is a look that will amp that up to va-va-va voom. Or even va-va-va-va-va-va-voom. While still maintaining my image as a serious professional, of course.” The result is Drop Dead Red - a full-length evening gown worthy of the two-time winner of Best Featured Livestock in a Comedy or Musical. Reeves masterfully mixes regal cable details (her signature) with the flirty fun of a halter neck. “When I make my entrance,” says Dolores, “people won’t know where to look.” Coming or going, this one’s a winner.
