It’s about time I write a second post here on this blog of mine!
I have been sewing quite a bit lately but most of it are Christmas presents so I can’t show you those projects until later. But when I was done with those I finally started on a Christmas dress for Anita. As soon as I saw the Winter Wonderland Collection from the great designers behind Pattern Anthology I knew that the Amaryllis Dress would be a perfect Christmas dress for her. Just as I was about to start Melissa, the talented lady of Blank Slate Patterns who made the pattern, announced she was going to have a sew along on facebook so I jumped on that. My first time sewing in public! I bought the pinkest fabrics I could find since my only to year old daughter refuses to wear anything that isn’t pink. That might in some way be my own fault as I have loved buying everything pink after having three boys before her. I bought the fabric from one of the to local fabric shops in my area.
The polka dot is a Quilters Basic Style # 4517 by stof.dk and the other one is Dimples by Gail Kessler for Andover Fabrics.
The dress came together very nicely, the instructions were really good and easy to follow. I was very happy with how accurately I managed to cut out all my pieces, everything lined up perfectly.
She loves her new dress! I can’t decide which side of the dress I like the best. What do you think, how should she wear it on Christmas eve?
Since it seems like I don’t have the fastest turnaround on my blogposts I guess I’ll just wish you all a very Merry Christmas now!
I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes!
Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment!
