My favorite model was very happy to show-off this dress. The chartreuse green corduroy was a great double for a holiday dress and a plain winter dress. My daughter can still wear her smocked Christmas dress from last year, so I didn't want to make anything fancy. I followed the pattern exactly as it is written for the "School Photo Dress." The front kangaroo pocket is easy and a big hit with little girls.
To make it really festive, I made a necklace for the holidays to match the dress.
For the rest of the year, I made this owl necklace to match the dress. I decided the jewelry making class I took 2 years ago was not coming back to me quickly. I may need to take another class before I try it again.
The above dress is "Vintage Jane" by Pink Fig. I omitted the overskirt since this owl print was hard enough to find one other print to harmonize with it. I love the simple lines and look of this dress. It is a great dress for pulling on your boots and being ready to go.
I enjoyed the sale at Planet Applique near Thanksgiving. These are a few t-shirts I embellished for the holidays. All the designs, except the owl (StitchonTime.com) are from Planet Applique.
