Christmas summer wardrobe

Our Christmas days can be swelteringly hot or cool, but it's always a eating fest with lots of running around with kids. I figure this is their holiday to just have fun, so that means running around and this year there's a pool involved (yah).
Most of my knit dresses are work dresses so they are so not festive or bright. At the Remnant Warehouse I picked up a bright coral printed knit and decided to be bold.

The dress is lined with tricot knit and I've used a sleeveless pattern Kwik Sew 2683 as the basis.
The fabric was less than $10/m so if I end up taking my shoes off on the day and end up running around with the kids, I can do so without any worries how my dress with perform.

There's another knit piece in my stash that would be another worthy knit dress so I'll see how time goes this week. Maybe I can squeeze it in for Christmas eve? So my two unfinished pieces are done.
25 Dec: This dress really worked well on the day.
