Christmas Dress 2012

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I never managed to post Avery’s Christmas dress before the holidays. You’ve probably been around here long enough to know that this dress is much more traditional than my usual style, but it’s good to mix things up a bit.

I used some vintage fabric my dad’s aunt passed on to me. Unfortunately, I had to cut a few pieces twice since I didn’t notice the flaws in the fabric at first. There’s always good and bad when dealing with vintage pieces. I used the Oliver + S picnic blouse pattern lengthened for a dress. I then lengthened the sleeves and added an elastic cuff. Matching plaids makes my head spin, but I think it all worked out for this one.


Love this picture Brooke took of our girl!
