I stayed up late last night to finish Gwyneth’s Christmas dress and Connor’s tie. I love how they turned out — now if only I can get a decent photo of them in it. Perhaps I ask too much.
The dress is made using the pattern New Look 6648, view C. The main dress fabric is from Robert Kaufman. I used an invisible zipper for the back which I love! The dress is fully lined. I really like the final product.
I love the little gathered bit of the sash at the sides.
I also made a little simple headband using this pattern, but with a 3/8″ seam allowance.
The tie is a pattern I’ve been working on for quite some time. It’s a skinnier, longer version that what I’ve seen out there. After several attempts, I like how it looks now.
I used the brown polka dot fabric for the detailed ends of the tie on the back side.
What a beautiful Christmas dress. Great work. Actually I made something similar from the Cottage House’s tutorial. When I saw yours, I was thinking, how similar! You can see the dress here
That is a beautiful dress. I love how the tie matches (even on the inside).
Both are absolutely gorgeous… hope you get a nice picture of your kids in them.
Gorgeous Christmas dress!I will have to check out that pattern for my 2yo.
They will look soooo cute in matching dress and tie – now if only I had thought of that – a tie would be much easier to make for my 5yr old, but alas I still have his Christmas shirt to pull together.
Beautiful – that fabric is gorgeous! I ought to make some more clothes. The kids wearing uniforms to school has made me lazy…
