A Christmas Dress


finished just in time. Probably because there were so many pieces to this dress it became more of a chore than a fun project! I still can't say I love it, but it will look very festive with her red and white tights. I used a Simplicity pattern that was inspired by Project Runway. The pattern gave different variations so you could customize the dress with short or long sleeves, bubble skirt, appliques, etc. It sounded like a good idea in the beginning, but ended up requiring too many steps! Anyway, it's done. Christmas is here. We're excited.

Adorable! It looks like it was a doosey to make, so good job sticking with it.

So I got a sewing machine for Christmas! Now I need advice...any good books you would recommend for inspiration and/or easy patterns? Probably baby stuff. Although I do want to try to make a quilt. It seems easy enough but we never did anything like that in my sewing class at BYU...
