Basic Bodice Christmas Dress

I started working on Christmas dress sewing.  I’ve grown tired of traditional Christmas colors and dresses that only get worn once or twice.  This year, I think we’re going with black and champagne.  Pretty, right?  First up is Grace’s dress….or at least, what was supposed to be a dress until I hemmed it too short.  I suppose she’s getting pants, too!  Want to know how to make a lace dress using any basic bodice?  I’m sharing the details today over at icandy handmade for Jen and Autie’s Basic Bodice Design Series


  1. I love your choice of fabric!!!
