Just in time

I managed to get the buttons and button loops sewn onto the holiday dress I made for Clementine, just in time for Christmas. You may remember that this one was part of the List O’Despair.

She rocked it of course.

The rainbow Baby Legs helped.

I did NOT get a matching one for Elliot finished as I had hoped. Nope-nope. But he had a nice blue dress shirt that matched his new accordion nicely (although he insists on calling it a “RE-cordion”), so now I can use the extra red material for something else festive next year!

This was SUCH a fun year for opening Christmas presents. Both kids “got it” and were excited about absolutely everything, even the small stuff. I’m so grateful for the wonderful time we had with our families who showered them with love (and presents of course).

I’m feeling very grateful, and I am hoping that each one of you is experiencing the love, joy, peace and hope that this season brings. Love and hugs to you all!

PS. Just in case you were still wondering, all of my falalalaFABRIC giveaways are now closed and the winners posted/contacted. I’m so happy we could send new fabric to NINE lucky winners this month — congratulations to you all! Many of my sponsors are still running promotions until the new year, so if you’re shopping online be sure to check them out!

  1. SO CUTE – love that you used the reverse (“negative?”) fabric for the placket. happy holidays, rae and fam! and that accordion is awesome – probably better than the kitty piano that my kids got from the grandparents, though it DOES keep them both occupied for long periods of time, so i can’t complain too much!

  2. I am so impressed with the way you used that fabric pattern – so perfectly placed, even the buttons too! I also love Elliot’s fingernails (I love little boys with nailpolish), and my nine year old has wanted something like that ‘recordion’ for years!

  3. You are a brave woman with the accordion! The dress is so sweet and I love the leggings! How many of the dresses have you made so far? I love the pattern but have no girls to sew for., boohoo. But am loving the big butt baby pants! I have 12 pairs in the works for the grandson as we speak.

  4. I love the dress and Clementine is a doll! The accordion is awesome and I love that Elliot really enjoys playing it. I only managed to finish one sewn gift this year (on Christmas day). I’m starting early this coming year, like in January!

  5. Adorable dress!

    I got a giggle over re-cordian. My oldest is 4 and puts re in front of many words, including the re-monica he got for Christmas. Maybe they could start a band?

    • Hi Laura: I found this at JoAnn’s in the quilting cotton section in October I think — they might still have it!

    • He loves it — we all (me Clementine and Elliot) paint our nails at the same time. He ALWAYS demands some combination of red and blue (Spiderman, of course). I use Zoya which is supposed to be less toxic (??) so hopefully it’s not harmful for them

  6. Love the words that kids make up – I started to sniffle a little remembering my older daughter saying “lellow” (yellow), bemember (remember), and “the huwai” (her name for the YMCA)… treasure those moments!

  7. too cute! that dress is adorable, esp with the rainbow baby legs! and funnily enough, Max wore that same great floral shirt for Christmas this year!

  8. You did a great job on the dress but I wanted to comment on your son’s shirt. I love that he wears flowers…my boys would not let me near them with anything could be close to that.

    • HAHA yes he’s not old enough (nor has he older siblings) to have learned yet that “flowers are for girls” … which I love … I’m going to be so sad if he ever decides otherwise. He’s already picked up on the “no pink” thing from preschool already — waaaah! 🙂
