Christmas Dress Decisions

Beautiful Christmas Fabrics

Black & White Polka Dot Shirt waist  Dress - nothing says Christmas
like Polka Dots..

Red Christmas Dress
My favorite color for Christmas or any day of the year!!!

Pink Dress for Christmas ? Really not for me...
But I do like the style.
   Christmas is my favorite holiday..  Not only  for the beautiful decorations,  the presents, the delcious food, but most importantly ,  what this day represents.. Our Saviour's birth.     My friend , Cathe, ask me a few days ago, was I going to do a Christmas dress?? So, I began to think, of what style I wanted to make?
   What deicisions to make...so many pretty patterns, so many pretty fabrics.. As,  I searched all my pretty Christmas fabric stash and patterns, I realized, I had tooo many!!!!!!  The decisions were too many..But..the time is getting close, so I will soon be starting on a new Christmas dress. Wonder..what color? what style???  I will be posting a Christmas dress ...pretty soon!!!!

Orange Challenge at Sew Weekly

Orange Challenge;
 New Look Pattern: # 6104 [ebay find]
 Fabric- tiny  orange and white plka dot
 Notions:  Green buttons  on sleeve cuff and dress [decision to use green buttons.. was to blend with embroidered  flower on front of dress]
Belt-  orange belting and buckle from Hancocks

  I love this pattern..It is really comfortable and easy to wear.  The sleeves are so cute..  The  cuffs have a little v on them.I took 2 small green buttons , not only does it hold the cuffs in place,  but added  a cuteness to the sleeves.

Last Rose of the Summer

I sure hate to see summer end.. I really love fall, but it seems to go by so quickly.   We have been having lots of frost,  and all the flowers are gone..  Kenny came in  and brought me this pink rose ,  off of our rose bush.. [how sweet!].  I stuck in  a vase with some  holly greenery.. for a wonderful bouquet .  The last of  our summer flowers..   I will just look forward to   spring returning.
