New Year's dress

This year, weather forecast for the New Year's Eve sounds somewhat scary. We are expected to have temperatures as low as -20 Celsius (-4 F). And these are temperatures we did not have for past two years, so yeah. Very cold New Year's Eve.

As I managed to trace my steps in making this dress, please check out the tutorial at the Curvy Girl's Refashions.

Wishing you all a truly Happy New Year!
