A Christmas Dress, very early!

I know it's a bit early to be thinking about Christmas but I was lucky to be able to test a pattern for Ellie Inspired this month and this beauty has Christmas written all over it! If you haven't seen her wonderful patterns yet you need to go check them out here. Warning lots of photos in this post!!
The whole dress is done in an off white with a golden brown ribbion sash around the waist. THe front bodice is smocked all by hand, my first outfit smocking ever!
Here is a closer look at the front bodice, sorry the sash slipped up a bit with Sweet pea wiggling around and trying to play. The collor and the end sleeves are trimed in a lace, love this part! Gotta love the look in her face here, lol.

This was a wonderfu way to cheer me up, I love that about sewing! I was able to spend some timeing chilling on the couch smocking watching movies with the kids all weekend so this was a fun project.

Happy Sewing!! Sew along will contuniue tomorrow morning!

  2. Thank you, it's the Alouette pattern.
