Fairy Tale Dress

This little sweetheart had a second birthday last week.  And being that she's a holiday baby, I really wanted to sew her a Christmas dress.  I knew just the pattern I wanted to try out: The Fairy Tale Dress by Oliver + S.

It is such a darling, classic dress.  The Peter Pan collar and tulip cap sleeves really make the dress so special.

Here's the pix I snapped real quick before church.  I had excess fabric left over so I made my other daughter a matching skirt, with a self drafted skirt.

The kids are really too darling.  Having them all matchy-matchy, I can barely stand the cuteness overload!

We set up the camera on a chair and got some nice, up-the-nose shots.  That's okay, dressing for Christmas is kind of my favorite!

Merry Christmas to you all!

Your family is beautiful and the children look adorable in their Christmas outfits. What I really loved and might like to copy is your Christmas card. That is so creative, I love it.
Please come visit my blog, I am having my three year blogging birthday and celebrating with a give-a-way. Not much just an embroidered dishtowel and potholder. I'm a wife, momma and grandma who loves to sew, craft, cook and garden. Oh, and I play and sing in a old geezer band, we play at farmer markets and nursing homes.
