I am just realizing that we are more than half way through October, and I am still a long way from my “6 plane tickets for Christmas” goal. So I spent some time this week designing some christmas themed dresses, just to remind myself to keep on working, and maybe just remind you folks that the holidays really are just around the corner ; ). I thought to myself, “How do I like to decorate my house for Christmas?” The first thing that came to mind was of course a Christmas tree, so I designed a christmas tree dress.
It’s pretty simple, but if I have time, I’d like to add some beads or sequins or something to make it a little more festive.
Here’s a view from the back if you’re interested.
My next favorite holiday decoration is probably holly, so I went for a very simple skirt and blouse so the sprig of holly could stand out.
I thought it would go well with my red wool horse, but I already sold that one, so I’ll have to make another.
And last, but not least, even though we hardly ever have white Christmases around here, you’ve gotta have snowflakes.
Embroidering these little snowflakes made me think that she might need something to keep her warm, so I added a little cape and beret, ’cause I’m a sucker for capes and berets.
So there we are, all ready for the holidays! What are your favorite Christmas decorations?
