A Merry Stepford Christmas…

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

This is my newest make, the Stepford Wife does Christmas Dress. This dress is actually the result of one of those rare ‘happy’ sewing mistakes that apparently do pop up on occasion (who knew!).


This dress started out originally as a plain red Anna dress, number one on my Summer Sewing List. The bodice came out beautifully, with absolutely no adjustments needed. In fact, I may have squealed when I tried it on because this bodice is so darn flattering!!

The skirt on me unfortunately, was another matter entirely…


For more details, head on over to my blog!

And I just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas :) I hope you all get to spend some quality time with your loved ones (and your sewing machines, which probably count as loved ones right?).

It is so lovely!

When I saw you had called it the Stepford wife dress… I know the dress you were thinking of ! It stood out to me in the movie too.
