One more dress. Just in time for Christmas.
This has to been my favourite dress pattern. I can’t even count how many times I’ve made it now. The Made-By-Rae’s Geranium Dress is definitely a staple in my sewing repertoire.
I was going through my fabric stash in the week before Christmas and came across this adorable fabric that I had picked up last year in the hopes of making some gift bags. While I never got around to that project, I knew this fabric would be perfect for a fun Christmas dress for my now one-year old daughter (can you believe she’s one already?? I certainly can’t!).
I’ve made this dress so many times that I don’t even need to look at the instructions anymore.
It was the perfect outfit for our Christmas get-togethers this year. (Yes, she’s walking now… my world is forever changed!)
I had so much fun making that dress, that I decided to make two more. One for each of our nieces. I mean, why not? A week before Christmas is plenty of time to start and finish handmade gifts (although, if I’m honest, it might have been less than a week at this point).
Not Christmasy fabric but who could resist dressing up your three and five year old nieces in adorable cat fabric. (They have a cat and are big cat fans.)
Of course, I was sewing on my Janome Skyline S7.
In no time, I had two adorable dresses ready for Christmas gifting.
So maybe one more dress actually turned into three more dresses… just in time for Christmas.
Did you do any Christmas sewing this year? What is your favourite pattern to sew? (Maybe give me some new ideas!!) What are your 2019 sewing plans? I have two quilts I’m really excited to start working on.
