With Christmas fast approaching, I wanted to share 3 special dresses I made over the past few years. I’ve already posted about these with a lot of other baby dresses on the posts Heirloom baby dresses , and Blessing/Christening dresses I think these Christmas dresses deserve there own post so here they are!
Lucia’s Christmas dress
One of Beth’s (my big sister) best friends had a baby girl right before Christmas and this dress is what I came up with for her to give to them.
white imperial batiste and french lace. hand embroidered red bullion roses, greenery, and a white mistletoe embroidery design that was inspired by a piece of Christmas fabric I have.
Lucia, the best present under the tree.
I sold this one at a boutique so I don’t have a picture of the baby. If anyone knows the owner of this dress, please have them send me a picture!
off-white imperial batiste and french lace. hand embroidered floral design of red poinsettias and white poinsettias with yellow centers, and green leaf/vines. Although this embridery was intended to look like poinsettias, it doesn’t really scream “Christmas!” and could be worn year round.
My Aunt Melisa bought this for her granddaughter, Ruby. I gave her a great discount on the price because she gave me the smocked dress pattern she used for her first daughter’s blessing dress. I felt so honored!
