Me: “I just finished my Christmas dress!”
Friend: “…is it green and red?!”
Me: “Oh how did you guess?!”
Oh yes, my fantabulously floofy Christmas dress had its debut today, performing for an audience of roughly 200.
I used McCall’s 6350 and had a lot of… “fun” altering the bust. Aka not fun at all. Anyhoo!
This is View D. I absolutely love the skirt, as it has just the right amount of twirly power that a girl could ask for. The only real change I made was the length of the skirt, which I cut about two inches off for in order for it to sit nicely on the petticoat.
The fabric is an adorable cotton print, covered in gingerbread men and women and peppermint swirls.
It was a hit!
