This has to be one of the easiest patterns I’ve made yet it is from this month “A Look Inside”. There was a lot of basting and gathers, still not sure about the way the neck sits but I’m happy with it anyway. The fabric is a cotton and very light, which is good since we are now in summer here in Cairns, I didn’t want a too Christmas fabric so I could re-wear the dress thought out next year but something that still had the theme to it.

 All up this was a very easy pattern. It has more of a house dress feel to it then a “Let’s go out!” feel but I don’t mind as I need a few more of those. I might make this pattern again but maybe with out the neck ruffle and less fabric in the skirt, mostly to save on fabric and cost. 

If you would like to see more on this dress please feel free to visit my blog, Atomic Mum.

  1. Oh Yes! What a sweet dress. Perfect fabric choice for the style too. Here in the us with a crinoline slip would make a swell square dance outfit. It looks great on you. Thanks so much for sharing. Jane

  2. What a wonderful print for Christmas, and I think it has a lovely casual going out feel to it (BBQ or picnic)! Very fresh looking!
