pullover holiday dress

Added Jan 20, 2012

Plainfield, New ...






With only a few days till christmas, i found myself in a pinch when i realized i had nothing to wear. All my vintage patterns are in storage so i ended up at walmart and saw a pattern by lisette (made by simplicty) and it looked cute and quick.

once i opened it i realized, it was…kinda boring. well for a holiday dress. so i refashioned the pattern and tweeked it where i didnt need to make button holes (i also tweeted the sleeves since the original sleeves looked like they my cut off my circulation).

i added lace to the top bodice and back as well. i can easily say it is one of the most comfy dresses i own

you can see i paired it with my green cape (also made around the same time)

Material Notes

cotton sateen, lace, charmuse

    Even faster—use velcro for the closure and put buttons as faux

    That is really cute! I think I have that pattern too, so now I know how easy it is to tweak the pattern. Thank you for sharing!
