· Merry Christmas! ·

A very Merry Christmas to all of you, dear readers!  I usually share a selection of my favorite vintage holiday cards, but this year I wanted to share photos of a recreation that my mom and sister did a couple years ago!

This is a bit of a funny post to share, since it's my sister's dress and I was entirely un-involved with the entire process, however the finished result is so charmingly festive that I felt like you'd all appreciate it anyway. :-)

May you all have a happy Christmas!

The dress is made from a polished cotton twill, which is well-suited to the box-pleated, full skirt.  The plain bodice closes with buttons and the removable faux fur cuffs and collar match the pixie-style hat and muff.  A black sash and neck bow add a touch of contrast, and the black purse and shoes step in for the original green.
