Christmas Dress

I am honoured to be making a special Christmas Dress for a good friend. She fell in love with this Vogue pattern...
and she chose a raw silk in Christmas red, with sheer shiny organza for the flower ruffles.... Very stuning.

I started (because I could not wait until I needed to add the sleeves) with the flower detail on the sleeves. It is a clever use of organza strips, folded in half and hand stitched in a swirly pattern to the sleeve.

The body has some serious pleating on the left side.... nice.

Work continues..


  1. Stunning fabric, please don't tell me you purchased it at some obscure fabric shop in the Niagara Region because I'm going to cry!

  2. Fabric purchased at Fabricland!
