It’s taken another holiday to get my next sewing project finished! When I saw this tui and Pohutukawa print I knew it would make a perfect Christmas dress for me. Four years ago my husband and I spent six months in New Zealand and one vivid memory of Christmas was the beautiful red flowers of the pohutukawa tree flowering everywhere like tropical Christmas trees.
This is my first Anna dress and the pattern is lovely. I made the size 10 and found the fit perfect. With no alterations it was simple to put together. I think I’ll try the v neckline next time as I’m not sure about the look of the high neckline on me. The bodice has a nice fit otherwise and the pleats are a nice touch compared to darts in many patterns.
Photos come to an end when Eva got involved!
Hope you all had a great Christmas. We had a lovely relaxed Christmas up in Dornoch with lots of eating, drinking and dog walking.
