If you were following our Christmas Dress Sew-a-long, get ready for a jam packed final blog post!!
First of all, let's talk about the finishing touches you will need to complete your dress.....
We are on the final post of this sew-along with fabric from WTF. It really is a beautiful dress- very simple but the fabric is sumptuous! I wanted to make sure the finishing touches were not going to let the dress down. In my head I had a Downton Abbey style dress with a cord belt. So at The Knitting and Stitching Show I bought some cord and some tassels from Aarti J to put on the end of the cord. I also called at Duttons for Buttons so I could add a beautiful button…..when the lady pointed out the Yorkshire Rose button there was no other choice! I am a Yorkshire girl!
Once you have your preferred notions, you're in a position to complete your dress. Here's the finished product from Amanda:
And here she is wearing it to a Christmas party and looking stunning!
