I always have a difficult time letting go of Thanksgiving and moving into Christmas. Maybe it’s something about the family-oriented reflection of Thanksgiving versus the consumer pressure that seems to preceed Christmas (can you tell which holiday is my favorite?).
Thanksgiving colors are rich autumnal golds, reds, and burgundies. Christmas is traditionally associated with two colors that I wouldn’t usually pair together: red and green.
Thus, the Harvest Dress.
This Tea Party dress was entirely fabric-inspired. It started with the golden yellow velveteen (velveteen is velvet made from cotton, which means it’s also washable and doesn’t have the sheen usually associated with velvet) which paired itself with a William Morris print fine-wale corduroy from Liberty of London.
