Keep in mind, this is on my dress form- Kelly has a youthful figure so it will look different on her.
I actually finished this right after Thanksgiving. It was the first thing I worked on for Christmas presents. I used a pattern from Burda World of Fashion magazine. The fabric is one of her favorite colors and it's a very cosy rayon double knit. All of the seams are reinforced with various weights of elastic to help the dress keep its shape. The skirt is very full (she loves maxi dresses). A winter princess dress.
And this concludes my holiday sewing for Christmas 2009.
