Just before Christmas, this thing happens every year: I do NOT get older *chuckle*. At least only every few years. I found out that there is a real phobia of aging that’s called gerascophobia. Completely irrational and unfounded, I already know that. Nevertheless, I’m celebrating my 22nd birthday once again this year and I’m sure I’ll celebrate it again next year. But at least I’ve already sewn a pretty dress for this day a few weeks ago!

As you can see from the photos, it just recently jumped in front of the camera with when we were chasing the snow. It’s a cozy knit dress based on the new pattern Party Dress.This is ONLY available TODAY, 12/14/2020 in the Ebookmacher Advent Calendar for free *hurrah*. You can add it directly -> here in the store <- for 0$ to the shopping cart and download it afterwards.

The special thing about this dress are the pleats at waist level, both in the front and back. These give the otherwise rather simple A-line sheath dress that certain something. Especially with plain fabrics and fabrics with lines or checks this can be seen best. In addition, the dress as so often has two front parts with different fits. There is the regular front piece and the second with an already integrated FBA (Full Bust Adjustment).

The super soft glitter knit here has been waiting in my fabric stash for quite some time, I can’t even say for sure where it was from. But for the party dress it was absolutely the perfect choice! Since I’ll probably be sitting at home all day today, it’s especially important to wear comfortable clothes. If it’s super elegant at the same time, I’m definitely sold. And yes, I absolutely love sitting in the house in a pretty little dress, without anyone seeing it. I in fact think that I have every right to make myself pretty even if it’s just for my own benefit <3

Enjoy the rest of Advent time and don’t let all the restrictions and lockdowns stop you from doing something good for yourself and getting dressed up for the holidays!

Love, Carina
