I am all kinds of fired up for Christmas, and as a result, I set about sewing G's Christmas dress this weekend. I have plans for L to have a matching replica, which has a 35% chance of actually getting done. Being that I lose focus quickly, you see.
In any case. I didn't want anything *complicated*, so I went with the standard pillowcase dress. Only I made it out of fancy fabric--shantung and dull satin--just to dress it up a little bit. I lined the inside with a purple polka-dotted cotton, and made the shoulder ties out of the same material, because I was concerned that the satin wouldn't hold a bow very well. Plus, I'm a big fan of polka dots. Don't know if you knew that about me.
My original thought was white t-shirt and tights underneath...but I'm thinking that some sassy red and white polka dotted tights might be freaky awesome. Or scary-mismatched-like-I-downed-6-beers-before-dressing-in-the-dark. I won't know until I see it together.
Yup, it's a fine line between looking whimsical or intoxicated.
What's on your to-do list for Christmas????
