Christmas dress number 1

ps. Please please please VOTE for me in the pinterest challenge for my   Pistachio bread pudding and for this  hedgehog pocket dress - thanks!


Now onto the Christmas dress!



The fall time reminds of how close we are to Christmas and soooo many projects are needing to be done so I thought I had best get started on my girls Christmas dress (or one of them at least).

I decided to use part of the jelly roll I had (Kate Spain's Flurry for Moda) and do a take on the apron knot dress I've seen about. I LOVE the fabric - Christmas-y and yet not to traditionally Christmas-y

The dress is adorable; I have a jelly roll (or two...) that I just may have to make into a knot dress!

What a good idea to make your own "fabric" out of a jelly roll. Great way to get lots of coordinating patterns together! Might just have to try this for my little lady. (visiting from TT&J)
