I love a simple fitted dress and I can’t get enough of floral prints.
This is what I am wearing for out family Christmas.
The pattern had a lot of fitting issues. I had to take it in under the arms/aide seams of the bodice and at the hips and fiddle with the straps a lot. I never enjoy that aspect of sewing but it was worth it in the long run.
The dress is fully lined which gives it a nicer finish.
Cotton. It is a interesting weave. Its soft and frays a lot. I can’t recall the name of the fabric. At the time this fabric was about $16.95 per meter from spotlight.
Pattern used: Butterick 5601
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
