Mommy ‘n Me ‘n Me (too!)

in Dresses

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?

I love the example of dressing it up for different looks. So fun!

Very cute!

Where, oh where did you find the fabric? The print looks like vintage #1 Barbies!

Adorable! All three of you.

That fabric is fantastic.

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! ;)

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 :D
