With my favorite itchy sweater, that matches perfectly.
W/o the sweater, I made bra straps for the dress using candy cane striped ribbon. The bodice was a real challenge. I don't understnad pattern measuerments. According to the pattern, I'd wear a size 16. I knew that was not the case, so to be safe I cut out a size 10, STILL to big. It was a pain trying to adjust it all after that. It worked out in the end, I guess.
I'm pleased w/ how FUN it looks. :-)
