My mum's Christmas dress

This is the dress that I made as a Christmas present for my mum this year:

I found the fabric in a local shop, I think it's amazing! Cute stylish toucans on a mustard background should be a staple in all wardrobes:

For the design I used a classic A-line dress with bust darts and added a little novelty with the sleeves from this top from my latest sewing book (the one I used to make my swans tie top):

Since I didn't have matching thread I hand stitched everything with off white thread so that it wouldn't show and I finished the neckline and armholes with black bias tape. My mum says she loves it and that it's nice to wear so mission accomplished for this time :)
