|Then using 1/8 inch elastic make a little loop.|
|You are going to pin right sides together of your two bodice pieces but put the loop so the loop side is on the inside at the top of the slit you made (where the pin is in the picture)|
|Then you will sew around the neckline and turn the piece right side out. Top stitch if you like.|
|Then with right sides together I added the sleeves to the bodice.|
|Then sew right sides together along the side seams of the skirt part. Then with right sides together sew the skirt to the bodice. Hem the bottom.|
|Lastly for some pops of green I added a green button for the back closure. (hence the elastic loop)|
|Then I added red silk flower (tutorial here) and in the center I put a green wool fabric covered button)|
|Done! It is simple, comfy and casual while being very festive.|
|I love the pop of color in back as well.|
|Worn over some jeans and you have a completely casual holly jolly look, add some tights and you have a dressed up look!

I love that specially with the button to the side in the back I might have to take that idea and of course give you credit :)<br /><br />Amanda

Another cute one!
How cute! And it looks like you've been doing something with red and green paint too? That's what my hands look like when I'm done painting anyway.
That turned out pretty cute!
