Christmas Sparkles & Fur, Oh My! {for FabricMart}

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.

For more project details and photos, please check out my post on the FabricMart Fabricista Blog!

P.S. If you’re not yet on the FabricMart email list, use my referral link to sign up and we’ll both get $10 off!

And an outtake: what photographing my children really looks like:

Merry Christmas everyone!
