This year I have stared on some fun sewing for Christmas already. I don't want to fall behind on my list. This year I want to make my two youngest some fun Holiday clothes that will work for the whole season. Sweet pea's is up first. (Mostly because I have not decided on boy fabric yet)
Well right now if you follow me on the Whimsical Fabrics Facebook group you know that I am smitten with Children's Corner Frannie dress pattern. I love the the instructions and constriction of this dress, the way it fits and the drape the dress has. All around it is a lovely pattern! This is my second one to date and I can promise that there will be at least one more this year. (I already ordered the supplies for the third one.)
The fabric is from Riley Blake and is no longer in print. I had been eyeing the fabric for some time and bought it when it went on sale here a few weeks ago, it worked out so nicely for dressy version of the Frannie. I sued the blue and pink color way for her Crochet night gown this past summer. I love this fabric line.
I trimmed this dress in lace and stain ribbon. The hem line has a lace that reminds me of gingerbread houses, I not sure why but I love it.
The dress is topped with a lace collar and the satin ribbons for the ties to finish the dress. I think this will make a lovely dress for a Christmas party or even a New Years Eve party. This dress also layers very well too so she can wear a lovely long sleeve Mattie under it this winter or even a lovely cardi over top. It's a great all season pattern.
