Santa Baby Dress Construction
This one is easy-peasy and doesn’t require any pattern alterations. Sew the strapless Landis Bodice in red velveteen with a white faux fur band. Add a free Charm Circle Skirt (or any Lamour-series skirt of your choice) and trim the hem with more white faux fur.
Before sewing with faux fur, you’ll want to prepare your tools and your space. (There’s a great article with tips in the Fall 2023 issue of Vintage by Gertie magazine). Cut the fabric backing only (not the fur!) with sharp scissors when cutting out your fabric pieces, and be sure to wear a mask while sewing. You’ll want to have a vacuum handy, too. Those faux fur fibers will get everywhere!
