Jingle bells.. Jingle bells... la la la

This adorable, amazing & cool series is almost over (sad face) only one more day to go... I was so happy when Gabriela invited me to join. Among all these amazing people (scared face here)... I'm classic and boring (well, my grandmother is. She is very conservative so there's not much room to inovate in terms of Xmas outfits) What will I make?!

I've wanted to make the Fishtail kimono since it came out. Gabriela (Chalk and Notch) I loved it since the moment I saw it (still waiting for the other patterns...) Have you seen THIS? Amazing! I did it in wool to use as an outdoor jacket for all the Xmas events. Ok, jacket, socks and shoes decided...
Saskia (Wolf and the Tree) I really wanted to make your socks, but I didn't have any appropriate fabric in hand... I can't wait to try those out! Everyone says your pattern rock!

Hello Holli it was a pleasure to met you! Let me tell you that just by looking at your blog profile picture you are someone I want to meet and became friends. How cool is that picture?!?
Now lets move on to the dress.... 
Can you tell I added a collar?! AHH AHHH. I guess you can see that quite well... I can't say it goes by unnoticed LOL. I'm really happy with the fit of the dress. It's perfect for Teresinha's baby belly, I love the curved high chest line ;-). I didn't use bias and made the bodice lined to add the collar.
Perfect matching Xmas outfits for the kids! YEAY! I think they didn't turned out so boring at the end ;-)
For her...
For him...

    1. Estive imenso tempo a ver que tecido usava... Confesso que ja estou a ficar farta destas estrelas LOL. Mas achei que era o tecido perfeito para o Natal. Added bonus ja tinha os calçoes do Francisco feitos ;)
