Christmas Dress Sew Along 2017, Weihnachtskleid-Sew-Along 2017

Hello, my dear friends,

long time no see. Today is already the second meeting of the German Christmas dress sew along Weihnachtskleid SewAlong 2017 WKSA. "I am decided and have got the fabric already"

Monika and Yvonet are hosting the great sew along  "Vom Laufsteg in den Kleiderschrank" meaning "from runway into my wardrobe". which motivated me watching some runway shows.

I am inspired by this Lanvin dress:
Lanvin Resort 2018, Vogue Runway
The best bodice pattern would be the Camì Dress by paulinealice but the shoulders don't fit me at all.
The pattern fitting the best would be Robe Bleuet by Deer&Doe, I have bought the updated version, too. But it features princess seams.
I could use the Emery Dress pattern and transform it to a shirt version using the Bleuet elements. Which means quite some work. 
The Flora Dress by ByHandLondon is providing the loveliest to wear skirt and will probably be my choice.
Last year at our great southern German sewing bee Annäherung Süd I was able to buy some lovely stretch synthetic bordeaux fabric which will hopefully give a nice result.
Are you sewing a Christmas dress, too?

We will meet again in 10.12.2017 to show the progress and in 23.12.2017 presenting our dresses. But now have a look at all the other's plans at MeMadeMittwoch Blog!
