I’m still working on my Christmas scrap fabric pieces. This week have done three more pillows, see tutorial on my tutorials page. They are very easy to make cushions with printed Christmas fabric on front and a plain back. Read More
I got out my bag of Christmas fabric scraps earlier this week because i found this very cute Christmas tree tutorial by Amy Smart from Diary of a Quilter.

I finished this dress for my youngest daughter last night. She told me some time ago that she wanted a dress with a lace pattern on the top half and denim on the bottom half. It is actually not denim but tencel which is a lot thinner and softer. Works well for a summer dress here.
I used two patterns: Newlook 6483 view D for the top half and Newlook 6843 view A for the bottom half.
I shortened the top quite a bit of course and added 1 1/2″ at the waist in the side seams on the skirt to make it fit with the bottom edge of the top. I also put in a 20″ zipper in the back.
As I have said before, I love it when the kids ask me to make things for them. This dress turned out great and she was happy too.
Until next time, happy sewing and take care!
