So I'm a teensy bit late getting back into blogging this year, but better late than never... or whatever.
Every year I make a Christmas dress. It doesn't have to be made of Christmas fabric specifically but I like it to have Christmas colours at least. Last year's effort was white with red and green, which is Christmassy enough for me.
This is a standard bodice/circle skirt pattern I use a lot. It fits well and it's very easy to make. I lined this one in a fairly stiff satin to make the skirt puff out. The outer fabric is a poly/cotton.
The first time I wore it I got a tiny little bit of chilli oil on the front, but it's so small it's not terribly noticeable.
Oh! And I have a new tattoo. I had my lower left arm completed in December. Three roses and a spidey on a web.
And of course, what would a Christmas dress be without my Christmas earrings? They are little dancing mice.
The end of my year was fairly low-key. I work in retail now and it was absolutely mental in the lead-up to Christmas Day! I can now gift wrap absolutely anything like a pro. I also never want to hear the words 'gift wrap' ever again until next Christmas. Afterwards, I sat down a lot.
New Year's consisted of a burger and a beer with my boyfriend, which was perfect.
New Year's resolutions?
~* more yoga (at least 4-5 times a week) *~
~* learn more recipes and cook more *~
~* try something new each month to be healthy *~
That last one can translate to anything - Sugar-Free Month, Walk More Month,
Don't Injure Yourself This Month, etc.
