The Christmas dress

Well peeps, only 2 weeks and 2 days until Christmas day! And while I have been busy buying and making gifts for my friends and family, I've also been doing a bit of stitchin' just for me. Everyone needs a nice Christmas outfit, right? And considering it will likely be hot here in Sydney-town, I've started on a lightweight dress for the occasion.

The dress is based off Burdastyle's Danielle dress, and the fabric I picked up in Copenhagen earlier this year (the print is particularly Scandi, don't you think?)

Work is finally starting to wind down for the year so I should get enough sewing time in before the day to finish the dress. I'll let you know how it goes.


  1. Looking good - maybe you could just belt it all together on the day with a pair of togs underneath - if it all gets too much to finish.
    I have an op-shopped bright green skirt with plenty of frills to wear on Chrissy day. I am so excited and can't believe how perfect it is. Booyah. Op Shop Gods deliver once again.

  2. bwahah! i saw this and thought.... why on earth would you want such a summery dress for Christmas?! then i remembered the seasons down under are the opposite of here. what a nut i am. anyway, so that is so cute!! and it does look light and breezy. love it!!

  3. ps--i meant to add your blog to my blog roll and for whatever reason it didn't happen...i am doing it now!!
