A few weeks back now I got together with my lovely club friends for a Christmas lunch, we originally wanted to go to Arthurs but learnt at the last minute they had shut up shop! Fortunately I found another restaurant, The Arborist which was delicious!
As it was a Christmas get together I thought I'd make some kind of effort to sort out a Christmas outfit even though I'm not really a Christmas person.
Sew Serendipity book, the book includes a basic skirt, dress/tunic and jacket pattern and gives you multiple versions of the same pattern showing how you can change them with a few tweaks. I've made another one of these dresses before, my Alicia Dress which I made at the start of 2014 - there must be some kind of link in my brain between sickly sweet prints and this pattern.
Speaking of sickly sweet prints, lets have a better look at the fabric I chose to make the dress. First up those gingerbread houses. This fabric was just a cheap and cheerful quilting cotton from Spotlight. I have to admit I didn't think I'd get any fun Christmas fabric from there, I thought it was just going to be very traditional and dull. So even though I may not be in LOVE with this dress I'm glad I did have the chance to wear gingerbread houses.
Jo for adding the super kawaii stickers to the photos!
