My mom made me and my sisters dresses for Christmas and Easter every year while growing up. I have always known that I wanted to keep this tradition going if I ever had girls. This Christmas seemed like the appropriate time to get started with Addison and Caroline. It was so fun picking out the pattern, fabric and see the dresses come together piece by piece. I successfully read the pattern and only had to call my mom a few times throughout the process. The dresses are not perfect but pretty good considering they are only the 2nd and 3rd dress I had ever made. I just love them and they were even cuter when Addison and Caroline were wearing them. I look forward to making many more dresses for them.
Here they are! I decided to make the same dress but get 2 different fabrics to use as the main fabric and contrast but flip-flop for the second dress.
Our little family :) I also made the headbands. I was surprised with how long Addison kept hers on but Caroline would immediately takes her off. Oh well.

This was such a perfect picturesque white Christmas this year. This is what Christmas morning looked like.
