I had a lovely Christmas and went out….oh yes I did! I’m a bit of a slippers and TV gal these days but did venture out into the ‘mild weather’ a few times.
One of those occasions was for my work Christmas do. Last year I made a dress to wear…
I fancied red with black lace over the top and bought the fabrics at the rag Market in Brum.
I chose this pattern as I really liked the blue one.
By the time it was finished the only changes I had made were to leave off the ribbon around the waist as it looked much nicer on Mrs Slim on the picture!
This year Christmas party look….
I cheated and bought the skirt because….well I liked it! The top I made using fabric from Guthrie & Ghani. I chose a dull black sequin and loved it.
The pattern for the top was…
….yes, the same as the year before. I just cut the length to what I wanted, left out the waist darts and rounded the neckline.
I also wore my favourite, comfiest red shoes!!
I work in a primary school and for our Nativity we wore black and I made us all a star to wear (and keep for years hopefully!!!).
Happy sewing – Carol x
