Vogue 8241, White Tree Fabrics & Sew Deputy
I am hoping you have joined me for a Christmas Party Dress sew-a-long.
Here is the Christmas Party Dress kit from WTF.
In this post we are going to be measuring and cutting out.

I cut out my pattern first and pinned it on my mannequin just to check it would fit!

I then decided to cut the lining out first and once again checked it would fit the mannequin!

Once I had checked it was definitely going to fit I carefully cut out the lace. Take care with where the fold of your bodice is and make sure you are happy with where the flowers on the lace will be. I was very careful with the lace cutting as it is so delicate.
I measured the length I wanted my dress to be. I am going for a full length style with a scalloped hem so I measured from my waist to the correct length. I then folded back 3 inches of the pattern so the hem would be the scallop.

And guess what…..I pinned it to the mannequin! I also used post-it notes to remember which side is the right side!

So….cutting out all done and we are ready to sew!
