The Holiday Dress

This year i decided to make Hailey a 
Holiday Dress
I've never made her one before so it was a first and definitely not a last!
While i was at Joann's i saw this fabric and it really caught my eye.
And even thought it was screaming as loud as it could at me to buy it - i walked past it.
I didn't forget about.......
So eventually i had to go back because i had the perfect idea of what i wanted to make.
But ended up making something completely different!
Haha my crazy brain.
So here's what i did.
It's a very simple design
nothing fancy.
And I even was able to sew a Zipper(my first zipper) on the back!
Go ME!!
The bodice is a  simple pattern i made up.
And is also lined on the inside.
Basic sash
So that's the dress.
Next i made a little fur coat to go with it using a free pattern i got
It was super simple to make and really didn't take that long either!

There you go!
I think I'm safe to say she loves it.
Have you/ have you ever made a Holiday dress?


  1. She is super adorable. You always make such pretty things. I can barely sew...unless it's a perfect square. Reading your blog ALMOST makes me think I can do it too.

  2. Very cute. I can't believe you made up the pattern for a dress bodice. Talk about skills!

  3. This is beautiful. You did a wonderful job. I have a link party called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party and would love to have you share this with everyone. Here is the link to the party.

  4. Very pretty dress! Your daughter is lovely - and this will make for beautiful holiday photos :)

  5. Beautiful dress and coat! And what a cute smile :)

  6. You did a fabulous job on that! I really like the addition of the coat. Did you sew a pettiskirt for underneath or does the dress poof like that by itself? So cute!

  7. The dress looks cute as the kid. Nice pictures!!!
