I had a lot of fun making this dress. It was pretty easy too. For the top I used a long sleeved t-shirt, cut off the hem and decorated the front. For the tree I cut 10 strips of ribbon about 3 inches long, folded them in half and sewed them to the shirt. I cut a small trunk out of a fabric scrap. The pom-pom on the top of the tree and on the waist band was made from scraps of fabric also. The skirt got a little tricky. I've never been a mathematician. I wanted the skirt to look like a peppermint so I cut an angled pattern piece to try to do that. The angles didn't work out quite right at first but I adjusted it and I like how the skirt came out. You can't really see in the picture but the white in the skirt has snowflakes.
She likes it. That's a good thing.
My husband and I went to his company's Christmas party on Saturday and she wanted to wear her party dress even though she wasn't going. I love this girl!
