I'm dreaming of a white Christmas| 1950's Christmas Dress

Happy Holidays!!!!
I trust everyone had a great Christmas with family. I know I did!!!


I am so excited to share this 1950's Christmas outfit I sewed.


White Christmas-Bing Crosby
And yes I am dreaming of a white Christmas because here in Texas it rarely snows:)




I used Vogue 8789 view B which is actually a 1957 dress. A few changes I made were lowering the front neckline an inch and doubling the width of the cummerbund. Dress is made from satin and the cummerbund from sparkle organza.



I love fur coats and wraps. I had fun making this cream fur wrap, but it was a little challenging. 






Here is the crinoline that I made and wore under my dress. Because 1950's skirts just don't look the same without one:)

Be sure to go to Edelweiss Pattern Blog and check out all the other lovely Christmas outfits!


☆Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too Ya'll☆






Thanks to my oldest brother for taking my pictures and my younger sister for doing my hair!
