Being a massive loser and big kid over Christmas, I’ve always wanted to sew myself a special Christmas-themed dress. I wore this one last night to my work Christmas party and will host my own party later on in the month wearing it (as long as there are no stain-producing food accidents!)
This one was inspired by a couple of 50s patterns I own, but I ended up drafting the boddice myself after I got frustrated with the pattern and then almost ran out of fabric (thus the large red midriff section). The skirt is just gathered and contains a good 5m of fabric.
The fabric was called “Colourful Christmas Holly, White,” ha. It’s 100% cotton and was found in the Christmas fabric selection at work (Spotlight- fabric store).
