I thought about going non-traditional for Christmas colors this year, but I just couldn't resist sticking with red and green.
I blame it on the shoes. I kept picturing bright red, ruby shoes that dictated the rest of the ensemble.
Washi like) the the front. :) Stuff like that.
I quite love how it ended up though. I love simple looks.
I plan on making another dress with a tutorial.. soon.
I used a pattern similar to this one for the shoes (read more about it here), with some changes to make it a better fit for Natalie's small, slim feet. I have a post on that in the works as well.
The tights were made using Made by Rae's Baby Tights tutorial.
I love being able to make tights in any color and pattern. It's really such a great tutorial.
Natalie's cardigan was made using this tutorial I guest posted for I Am Momma Hear Me Roar.
And she was set for Christmas Eve! Well...that was the idea. This poor gal was sick all through Christmas. :( She was finally well enough to wear it to church the following Sunday.
Because she is so petite (except for her head! ;)), I've gotten away with using the same 6 month size bodice pattern I used for Project Run & Play. I think it's time for a bigger bodice now. It's getting a bit tiiight. :)
That's on my to do list this week!
Hope you are enjoying the new year so far. I am going to finally join the rest of the world in welcoming 2013. ;) With this last Christmas post done, I am finally ready to move on. See you tomorrow!
