Scandinavian Christmas Hide-and-Seek Dress

Scandinavian Christmas dress by nest full of eggs
What can I say? Christmas brings out the Scandinavian in me. I'm delighted to be joining the Scandinavian Christmas series again this year that Kathryn over at the Pickled Herring is hosting.

This year I am excited to show you the unique, one-of-a-kind Scandinavian Christmas dress I created. I was inspired by Saint Lucia who wears a white dress with red sash and a crown of green leaves.

Can you guess where the yoke fabric came from?

Project details
Pattern: Oliver + S Hide-and-Seek Dress
