Yes, I am on Christmas dress number 2….this time around the family is going to be in lime green, charcoal gray and cream. There is a story…I want to use the outfits again for a big family function in February (Isaac’s adoption finalization-yippee!) and decided it was better not to make the colors so Christmasey.
I made the same shift dress but this time changed the top up a bit. I have been in love with these dresses from Katiedid (I am sad that a crazy ruined her blog for everyone….she is an amazing seamstress) for a long time and decided to do this same effect on the top of Hannah’s dress.
I followed her tutorial but didn’t hand sew the two layers together, instead I put them all through the machine (I am a slllooowww handsewer) and you can’t even tell from the front.
And a sneak peek….I have a lot of handsewing to yet do. (Which will take a hot mug of something, kids in bed and a good movie tonight.)
Show you when I am done.
