Poinsettia dress and Tie
I stayed up late last night to finish Gwyneth's Christmas dress and Connor's tie. I love how they turned out -- now if only I can get a decent photo of them in it. Perhaps I ask too much.
The dress is made using the pattern New Look 6648, view C. The main dress fabric is from Robert Kaufman. I used an invisible zipper for the back which I love! The dress is fully lined. I really like the final product.
I love the little gathered bit of the sash at the sides.
I also made a little simple headband using this pattern, but with a 3/8" seam allowance.
The tie is a pattern I've been working on for quite some time. It's a skinnier, longer version that what I've seen out there. After several attempts, I like how it looks now.
I used the brown polka dot fabric for the detailed ends of the tie on the back side.
