Description

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!

    I really love this dress, it’s so cheeky! Did you make the petticoat as well? It’s lovely.

    You really do make the most fun dresses and this is no exception. I am sure you had a great Christmas and lifted the spirits of the other 200 people at your party. I always look forward to seeing what you will make next.

    this is the most unusual Christmas dress I’ve seen! That’s because I have never been to Australia ;-))

    How fun and pretty! I like your take on a Christmas dress. That skirt looks awesome and the white inset is cute on the bodice. Well done!
