Here is my inspiration for the holiday dresses:
And here is my dress:
As you can see, it looks nothing like those dresses but it's always nice to have inspiration, right? I love how the dress came out. For the skirt, I used pre-ruffled fabric. BEST INVENTION EVER. Instead of spending hours and hours perfecting my ruffles, I just cut it out and sewed it together. It's awesome.
For the top, I used satin with a cotton lining. For the back, I installed an invisible zipper which sounds very hard, but is actually easy peasy. There are tons of tutorials out there so I won't bore you with my very unprofessional way of doing it. I have different satin ribbon to tie around the waist but I didn't want to limit myself to only using Christmas colours, so I have a cream, red and yellow to add later.
Without further ado, here is my little monkey modelling her dress:

(This is where she decided she was done)
I'm considering doing a tutorial on the dress but I would like to see if anyone is interested before I put the time into it. If you would, just comment below!
Have you done any shopping for the little ones in your life? Have you ever tried to sew dresses before?
9 Days till Christmas!!
