Tragic sewing

I think this time I may have overstepped the boundaries of good taste.
This is the very popular Coffee Date Dress as designed by the Selfish Seamtress a few years ago, which is lovely and I have made twice before. A colleague suggested we wear something christmasy to work tomorrow. I found this hideous christmas print in my stash and put the two together. It's ugly, but what else would you expect from christmas clothing? I thought the gold belt added that little something extra.

I think we all make wrong fabric choices from time to time, I know that I do. I think having something Christmas specific is nice.

Some people I know will want to know if you won the bet!

You are bound to get lots of comments on it. It may not be for everyone but it's cute.

Sometimes clothes are for fun, not for good taste. The gold belt is perfect over the topness!

As a Christmas dress, perfect and you can always put on a light cardigan (constantly wearing them still in Sydney) if you want to break it up a bit more.
