Ten Cent Christmas Dress

I sewed up a Christmas dress for my 8 month old daughter using vintage Simplicity 9128. It came out so pretty, and I am really excited to get photos of her in front of our tree for this year’s Christmas card. All of the trimmings were vintage goodies from my late Grandma’s stash, and the fabric was from a bag of scraps given to me by a neighbor. All I paid for was the pattern, and that was ten cents! Well, a little bit of work goes a long way sometimes:

See more photos and read a little about my girl’s dress at my blog Farmhouse Garden. I hope all of your projects are going well too!

Thanks ladies! Sewing for near free is awesome, and that red fabric just begged to be made into a little girl's Christmas dress! Now that she is on the move, I need help keeping track of her!
