I finished up my daughters Christmas outfit last week. I saw the cutest Christmas Set in the CW Kids catalog and wanted to try to recreate it.
To make this dress, I used my Dropped-Waist Dress Pattern. I modified it a little by lowering the waist and widening the bottom for more fullness. I also lengthened the sleeves, gathered them at the end and finished them with binding. For the pants, I just traced a pair she already had and added a 6 inch ruffle to the bottom.
After I took these pictures, I went back and shortened the sleeves another inch and took 2 inches off the bottom ruffle of the dress. Looks much better, I think. I have tried to get some new pictures, but the weather has been so cold and rainy for the past week, I haven’t had much luck…
You can see how long the sleeves really were in this picture:
