Christmas Dresses

First let me just say, I didn't make these two dresses. 

I love getting my girls matching Christmas dresses and fell in love with these, but I couldn't find one for the youngest. 

So, I made one.  The fabric isn't a perfect match and I did the sleeves a little different, so I could use a pattern from another dress I made her. But, I think they all work together. 

I love the bow.

And the back.

Since I had extra fabric and green thread on the serger, I figured I better make one for Samantha too. Hers is more like the original.  

Samantha was the best model.  She didn't cry once while I tried to take pictures. I might stick to making her stuff.

It was worth the wasted time when I saw my daughters reaction to the surprise.

All your girls look lovely! Well done on the dresses. My next project after Christmas is to start making clothes for my girls' dolls. I know they'll love them, too.

Turned out cute! The doll dress is great! I love matching dresses for the girls, too. I'm sad that the older didn't want to wear her shirt (they were skirts) and the younger 2 shirts are too small already. Maybe should just do dresses next year. These are so cute!

*Phew*! Thank goodness Samantha didn't feel left out of the picture! Everyone looks adorable in their dresses! :)
