Mommy ‘n Me ‘n Me (too!)

January 16, 2014

I made the little one and I some Mommy and Me Christmas dresses. The truth is, I started making mine first, and when my little bunny saw it, she wanted one too. Of course, I spent hours embellishing her dress, and then I was hand hemming mine on Christmas Eve eve! All’s well that ends well. I’m sure I could blather on for a while here, but since it’s already mid January, lets just do photos and captions, shall we?

Oh, I forgot! It was Mommy ‘n Me ‘n Me (too!)
Now if her Barbie just had a little Barbie….
  1. Too cute! I saw this fabric at one of the shops and loved it, but wasn’t sure what to do with it. . . I just love what you’ve done with it! Also, that idea of braiding the ric-rac is BRILLIANT and I am sure to copycat at that at some point! 😉

  2. Your dresses are adorable! and I love that fabric. It was on my wish list this year, but I never picked it up. So nice to see it made it up! Posts like these make me wish I had a little one around to sew for — I don’t think I could get my dog to wear a cute dress 😀
