THE dress

I have already shown off the Christmas shorts so thought it was time to show off the Christmas dress too.

I used the Make it Perfect Pinny #1 pattern.  I prefer this over the Pinny #2 pattern, but only just.
As usual I found this pattern quick and easy to follow and I will be making many more of these sweet dresses.

I put buttons on the straps intead of a tie.  Easier for the Mr to navigate and a touch neater in finish (I think).

While this is a Chritmas dress, I stayed away from trees and stars so we could use it all Summer.  All these cottons are from the Spotlight Christmas coordinates range which still makes it festive enough.

I did make a slight cutting error making tier one and inch short which was easily fixed by making tier two an inch longer.  Silly mistake which matters not a jot in the finished result.


  1. Ooooh thats gorgeous - perfect for christmas without being too christmassy!

  2. This is really sweet Becky - loe the colours.

  3. Oh that's really lovely!! The dress is not as sweet as the model though! :)

  4. Ooh I love this! It's definitely Christmas-y without being over the top. Really really nice :)

  5. Oh my goodness, you get seriously more crafty each time i check your page. This is a really gorgeous little dress. Definitely Christmas Spirit.
