My 2014 Christmas Dress

January 7, 2015

Happy New Year to everyone! I haven’t been great at blogging this past year, but I’ve certainly been busy sewing. I hope to make it up with posts about most of my 2014 projects in the coming months, I’m looking forward to revisiting them! My latest project was my Christmas dress, another franken-pattern, a mix of several actually, with a vintage feel to it.


I’ve been a bit obsessed with capelets lately (blogged about that here!) So I also made a velvet capelet to go with it, although it didn’t come out quite as well as I’d hoped! (Sewing shifty velvet to shifty lining did not prove easy, lol.)


Overall, though I was pleased with the end result! I was able to wear the dress both to see the Nutcracker (pictured here with a black cropped sweater) and to Midnight mass on Christmas Eve, with the capelet.


Many more details and pics on my blog!

  1. Wow, that is a very beautiful dress.
    And though I see what issues you have with the capelet, I love the look of the two together, it is just perfect!
