I had the privilege of making Addyson's Christmas dress this year...and it was so much fun! I've had the hankering to sew dresses for a little while now, and I finally got my chance. I think I may be hooked. This was my first dress. In fact it was a few firsts for first gather/ruffle...and my first buttonholes. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. I hope that it fits her well because there's no doubt that she'll be cute regardless. So, here it is....
Heather (Addyson's mommy) picked out the fabrics and she found a picture of what she wanted it to look like, so I took it from there. And now you get to send the end result. Of course since it is Christmas, it'll be a bit cold, so I monogrammed a turtleneck for her to wear with the dress.
Here's another close-up of the shirt. I had Bubba snap these pictures for me as we were in a hurry to get to a dinner for work tonight.
What do you think? The plan is that Addyson will be able to wear it for a's got colors that work for Christmas, without being too over the top so that she can wear it throughout the year. Heather and I talked at dinner tonight, and probably after it warms up some I'll add an "A" to the front in that pretty pinky-red.

I've got plans for a couple more dresses in the next couple weeks. I'm pretty excited about them.
