Both dresses are ready! And we have a portrait appointment for tomorrow evening. (That is what we are wearing. I love my teal cardigan and how well it all goes. I love this color scheme!) We should be getting Christmas cards back next Thursday *sigh of relief*


The fabric is plaid dupioni silk from Fabric.com The pattern was awesome and so easy to sew. It is the Sweet Little Dress from Leila and Ben . I made a few modifications to it:


I added three rows of ruffles to the top.


I also lined it with red pongee fabric. I sewed both fabrics together at the top before working on the casing.


I added tulle ruffles to the lining. Cute!!


And, inspired by Probably Actually , I embroidered a tag for the dresses. My daughters’ names seemed too long last night, so I just embroidered the personal logo I had to create for myself back in college (my major was Graphic Design and a personal logo/identity was one of our assignments).


I loved working on these, and I’ll definitely be using this pattern again.
