I wasn’t planning on completing another dress this month, well, not another dress for me, anyway. I did plan to make another Christmas dress for a second baby niece, but didn’t think I would have it completed, but I do! Yeah, me!
After showing Kendall’s mom several pattern options, she actually chose the same pattern I used for the vintage pattern challenge. Another plus since 1) I had it already and 2) kept the original intact; having traced it on pattern paper. Double yeah!
I didn’t think about this before, but Kendall’s dress matches in color to my Christmas dress! Hers is made of Royal Velvet. If I were to make this again from velvet, I would definitely make the lining pieces from a different material, as it is, the linings and facings are velvet at well. Making it a bit challenging to work with all that bulk for a size 6 month dress. That said, the lining will be so soft against he skin.
One design change. I made was to scallop the hem for this dress. I think it turned out nice.
