Winter Wonderland — Complete


Here’s the Winter Wonderland Dress for my older daughter! I first blogged about it here, but then got a little sidetracked. But now I’ve finally finished it in time for her Winter Concert.

She designed it herself and sketched it using my Fashionary. I added the white belt because I hate waistline seams, and, to me, nothing says “bad design” like a visible one.

It’s made of soft knit. She only wears knits, and at this point I know better than to try to get her into a woven.

    I love how she designed her dress. It so pretty. The belt really sets off the red and green

    I love how she designs her dress and you sew them up. She looks adorable. Does she want to learn how to sew, or is she happy to have her own dressmaker?

      It’s hard for her to go through the learning process. She sees how hard I work on my (and her) garments, but she also sees that I end up with what I pictured in the beginning. She’s disappointed when her results don’t live up to her expectations.
