Ruched Panel X-mas Dress

Added Dec 25, 2013

Nedre Vats, Norway






I wanted a red dress for Christmas <3 and I bought this jersey fabric at Stof2000 in Copenhagen. I like the structure in this fabric and with a combination of micro satin (which are very soft) I think it’s great. Since I used a fabric with stretch it was not neccessary with a zipper at the back and I’m very Happy with the dress :-)

Material Notes

Jersey and micro satin




Garment Type
Knits/Jersey, Satin

    I just saw it ! It’s awesome.. You are right, if there’s stretch then slip the zip. It looks comfortable. This smart ad it would travel nicely. Good shade I’d red because it flatters you well. The pictures are fun. :-)

    Lovely dress! Very festive! My children’s grandparents were from Denmark, so they are used to starting Christmas on the 24th as well.

      No I haven’t. There are no relatives any more. My parents were from Holland, and I have been there three times, and I can’t count how many relatives I have :-).
