Discount Christmas!

11 Mar

This is what happens when the Christmas fabric goes on clearance, and I buy it all.

I really needed an ugly dress to wear at the tackiest time of year. Unfortunately, glaringly hideous patterChristmas Dressned dresses are difficult to find if you are more than 5 years old. So, being graced with a new sewing machine, I decided to make my own! And guess what? You too can make your own holiday-themed attire! Simply purchase any pattern in any style, then pick up some printed novelty cotton when the season is over, and voila! You are ready for next year with a nauseating and festive outfit.

This was my first attempt at making a fitted dress with sleeves, and while it could have been a bit smaller in the bust and waist, it turned out pretty good! Plus, the dress has pockets (also a first for me), which will be especially handy at Christmas time for hiding baked goods and prezzies.

Now I’m left with about 5 metres of this fabric. Gift bags next?
