Seriously, I’m always amazed at how fast December comes to an end.
In between the school celebrations, birthdays, family gatherings, Christmas holidays, December seems to go too fast for all of us.
In our house there have been quite a few sewing projects, but I’m afraid I will not be able to post them all before the arrival of the New Year 😦
We have been making the most of these special days together – playing games, reading and just enjoying our time as a family (and yes, I’ve also been trying to achieve some proper work done in rather unusual hours of the day – I love my family and wouldn’t want it any other way, but in months like these my work routine can become quite chaotic) .
I leave you with my little girl Christmas Eve dress – a last-minute attempt to sew a size 6 dress with one-yard of fabric – of course, I didn’t manage to add a sash and additional waist piping due to the lack of enough fabric.
The main fabric is tartan viyella and the collar and sleeve bands were made of fine corduroy.
We both love it (and I love the way it coordinates with her new winter coat) and she look quite proud of it – she picked the back-buttons.
I’m hoping to return tomorrow with the outfit she wore on the Christmas Day. Everything else will have to be posted soon afterwards.
In the meanwhile, I do hope you’re enjoying the Christmas holidays with your loved ones.
