this Jingle Bell Dress.
I dug this 2 piece bridesmaid dress from Watters and Watters out of my closet. I didn't use the top, just the full a-line skirt which is made of Dupioni silk, it's size small & fully lined.
To make the Jingle Bell Dress, follow this free pattern & tutorial, the dress features a trapezoid center bodice shape with double breasted button closure.
20 inches long & 1.25 inches of .75 inch elastic were used.
24 inches long & 1.5 inches wide, 1.5 inches of velcro were used.
It was $3.99 for 1 1/3 yards of silver sequin trim (there are a few inches leftover), long silver skirt was from my closet (skirt & top (a gift) were bought on consignment for $14 (that's what the price tag read), only the skirt was used for this project, so I still have the top for a future project), 30 tiny silver jingle bells were from my stash as well as the elastic for the head band. Oh, I guess I forgot to add the cost of the 1.5 inches of velcro whatever that small amount would be...
So although this dress might look expensive, it actually didn't cost that much to produce, yeah ! Gotta love that :)
Also one last note, about the hair, to achieve this look we did sock bun curls.
PS Many thanks to the Project Run & Play sew along judges who picked my Jingle Bell Dress as the winner for week 1 :)
