It’s already a week since Christmas and I haven’t posted about Christmas sewing yet. Outrageous. Anyone would think I’ve been on holidays!
Two Christmas dresses were sewn this year.
One for me. One for Felicity. Both Burdastyle patterns. Both in novelty cottons from Spotlight. Both with pockets.
Mine was BurdaStyle 04/2016 #114, lengthened to the dress length of #115 and added #115’s in seam pockets. Appropriately sack-like for Christmas dinner eating.
Felicity chose a more fitted style. But I added a bit of ease in it when I did the FBA. Christmas dinner reasons.
Felicity’s dress is based on BurdaStyle 07/2016 #111
Her version has
- wide shoulder straps for bra strap hiding reasons
- less full box pleats for narrow width fabric reasons
- a shorter skirt, for fashion reasons
It was excessively hot here for Christmas. Cool cotton dresses were perfect.
And now its 2017. Thank you and best wishes to you, the wonderful online sewing community.
Happy New Year!
