The decision was a tough one, but finally I settled on a pattern and fabric for my christmas dress. I'll make the Darling Ranges dress by Megan Nielsen:
Right now, my fabric choice is a bright red rayon crepe like the one below. Will I look to Santa-ish? Or is a red dress just fine for christmas eve? Some darker colour will for sure look more festive. But then I actually try to avoid fabric shopping, knowing that I will probably end up with more than I planned on buying...
I already traced the pattern and will sew a (wearable) muslin next week. But now I am having a look what the others did so far for the christmas dress sew-along.
