While out shopping during the madness known as Black Friday - I came across some great deals (40% off everything in Banana Republic!) and some great inspiration for Christmas dresses!
Here's an idea for Lucy's dress - I love the ruffles and the gathered yoke.
I'm certainly NOT going to pay 44$ for a dress that will end up
covered in cheerios and pickle juice.
I'd rather spend 12$ and 4 hours making the pattern and dress!
(does that sound insane?)
Here are some other ideas floating around in my head.
This Mod Cloth dress - I love the white crocheted details. Maybe make it out of a comfy knit?
I'm definitely digging the front and center bows - especially when they're tastefully done.
But sometimes bows can be tricky - and end up a little on the deep end.
I've also thought of going non-traditional and making a blue and white satin peasant dress with a bright yellow sash. We'll see.
I'm very pregnant and at Christmastime I'll be ready to pop.
I don't feel like making a dress that could cover a parade float.
If I did make a dress for me - it would probably resemble this dress from Mod Cloth. (my favorite source of dress inspiration)
Don't forget there is only one more day of 30% off all Owly Baby purchases!!
