One down...

two to go.

I am working on a "visit with Santa" post (I promise) but, for tonight, you'll have to settle for pictures of Allie's Christmas dress that was finished this evening.

That's Anna's arm. She was half-dressed and kept chasing after Allie and jumping into all of the pictures.

Anna tried on Allie's dress and gave it a few spins.

Allie loves her dress. She gave me a big hug and told me that I was the best mommy ever and that I do great sewing.

(Fashion note - they will have to wear long sleeved shirts under these dresses for this time of the year.)

Looking great S. Do you use patterns for the dresses you make? Could you do a post with some of your craft sites?

OMG. That dress is darling. Would also be interested in pattern source. Elaine

Thank you! I use my own pattern for skirts - those are really just measurements - you don't need a pattern. But for this dress - I definitely had to use a pattern. It is the feliz party dress - I think the only place to get the pattern is in a book called "Sewing Clothes Kids Love." I bought it off of Amazon - the book has 10 different patterns.

I'm sure hearing you're the best mommy ever makes those feelings of never having enough time worth it!

The dress (and the girls) are adorable!
