An Old Fashion Christmas

I can't get enough of Christmas dresses for Sweet pea! I was given some fabric from a woman at church a few weeks ago, this was a print that I though said Christmas to me. I made the pattern my self, (it took a week of planning to make the pattern).
 I did like the button loops on the back of her birthday so I wanted to make them on this dress. I just added two more for six in all. The front bodice comes down, like a swoop, fully lined. There is a big bow tie in the back.
 At the end of the sleeves and the bottom of the dress is a pretty ruffle. The dress goes just about all the way down to the floor. I wanted it to look like an old fashion Christmas dress.
 Later tonight I hope to finish her bonnet to match. Have a great weekend!
