I would love to share my holiday outfit with everyone. I hadn’t known what I was going to sew up until I stumbled upon the pattern and the fabric weeks before Christmas; but I instantly fell in love with these dark poinsettias and paired it with a Butterick 6168.
I really, really love the modern aspects of this pattern. It looks so good as a tunic or dress. I will be planning many spring dresses in this style!
I didn’t make a muslin as I had told myself I would but it worked out fine. The fit is pretty good so there was no need to even worry about a “something I should do”… there is enough stress at the holidays.
I do remember the zipper being inserted a few times although there is no way you could tell with all the busiest of this fabric. I sized it an 8 (bust), 10 (waist), and 12 (hips).
A little twirling never hurt anybody!
I had a fun and festive holiday, even while fighting off a bit of flu, and I hope everyone else fared as well!
Take care into 2017!!
