My girlfriend would love wearing this around the house as she's hosting her holiday parties and serving drinks! What a novel idea, and pretty too! It's a bit of a departure from the types of projects I normally take on. I am totally unfamiliar with a bodice, for instance. Pattern is well written, though, so I am sure I could tackle this with confidence.

This is one of the prettiest ones yet. I can't get over it. I have to start on it right away so I can give it as a hostess gift during the holidays. I have been invited to a bunch of brunches and dinners and this will be a wonderful gift. It's easy too!

This strikes me as very Nordic looking, and worked with the red background, very much like Mrs. Santa as well. Theres a free download at the Red Heart site. If you dont celebrate Christmas or just want to keep using it for more than just the holidays, I think it would look nice with a dark to medium blue background. You might even add a few more smaller snowflakes scattered across the top, too.

With the snowflakes, do you fasten off and then join?

This is cute! I would love to make this and give away for christmas
