With just a few days to go before Christmas, I knew my final FabricMart make of 2021 needed to be fancy Christmas dresses for my daughters! Ignoring all the dire warnings from sewists on the Internet, I bravely selected some cranberry sequined stretch velvet, panther black polyester faux fur, and polyester stretch lining. And then I crossed my fingers and hoped I wouldn’t have serious regrets!
For this project, I used the Peony Patterns Periwinkle Dress and Oliver + S Red Riding Hood cape (originally from the Oliver+S book “Little Things to Sew”). FabricMart provided me with a budget of $50, and the 3 fabrics I selected came to about $48.
And an outtake: what photographing my children really looks like:
Merry Christmas everyone!
