Hello, my dears,

All of the dresses have been worn a lot with the exception of last year's dress in which one I would be overdressed everyday.

Today's thoughts gathered by Dodo at Me-Made-Mittwoch:
Ich weiß schon, was ich nähen möchte
Ich habe so viele Ideen und kann mich nicht entscheiden.
Ich weiß genau welcher Schnitt, aber keine Ahnung was für ein Stoff passt.
Stoff ist da, aber welchen Schnitt solch ich nur nehmen?

This year, I know pattern and fabric already. I want to sew a jacket going with my dresses from 2014, 2015 and 2015. 
While normally, I would always start by the pattern, this year I had this fabric:
It's a burgundy red cotton velveteen I had bought at our last year's blogger meeting at Köln for some euros. 
I had wanted to make a little costume jacket first but when I saw this cute jeans jacket pattern, I knew that I had my pairing fixed.

Papercut patterns                                       Deer and Doe
If I would have more time, I would sew a Meridian dress (left) or the Magnolia dress (right).

Have a look at all the other's plans of Christmas dresses! Will you sew a garment for Christmas, too?

Have a lovely evening!

P.S.: Aus einem mir unerfindlichen technischen Grund schaffe ich es nicht, zu kommentieren. Die von mir geschriebenen Kommentare auf Euren Blogs werden nicht übernommen und verschwinden einfach. Ich kann Euch deshalb leider nichts über Eure tollen Pläne schreiben.
Liebe Grüße, SaSa
