  4. Those are my kind of Christmas lights! And fabric!

    Wow, I like the way you pieced the bodice.

    Hope you guys had a great Christmas! :)

    1. Thank you, Sue! I cheated! The bodice is not pieced. That's shimmering Artisan Spirit, I think, and I absolutely fell in love with the fabric. It's the inspiration for the dress.

  6. I am not much at making clothes but I love this dress. Is there a pattern?

    1. Thank you, Daytona! No, there is not really a pattern, but it wouldn't be difficult to come up with one, I think. I did use a bodice pattern from a dress I knew fit well, and I pieced 2 sets of 18 2.5-inch jelly roll strips into what essentially would have been lap quilts, then sewed them together to form the skirt and gathered them at the top to attach them to the bodice. I'd done this a few years ago to use up the fabric from dresses I'd made and worn out over the years, and it makes for a very warm dress in winter, so I decided to make another one with a Christmas theme.

    1. If it wasn't going to be so darned cold, Lizard, maybe we could... Although if we wait for warmth, it won't be until December 2016...

    1. Why, thank you, Di! I'm still crazy about all the purples, three months later. I can't wait to see what else I can design with these fabrics!
