Christmas jumper too warm and woolly?

by Helen on November 12, 2013

It looks like this year the trend for cute and kitsch Christmas jumpers will be just as strong as ever – I know the two trendsetters in my family, Rosie and Dan, have already purchased their woolly apparel. 

Although I love the look, as the Christmas cook I find that any sort of jumper becomes far too warm and toasty as I baste the turkey and stir my bread sauce on Christmas morning.  For this reason I’ve resisted investing in a Christmas jumper as I end up feeling extremely hot and bothered by the time lunch is served.  But I do feel a little left out which is why this year I’ve decided things are going to be different! I too am going to be seasonal and festive wearing my new Santa apron.

 Some easy machine applique and cheerful red ric-rac braid will ensure that I look just as festive as the Christmas jumper wearers – and won’t end up feeling as roasted as my turkey!

The pattern for my Christmas Santa Apron will be in the December issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine, published on Thursday 28th November – so you’ll have plenty of time to make your own apron before the big day!
