Last week I shared Yuki’s Confetti Sparkle Hanami Dress and I mentioned I had sewn something for Kaya and myself in Confetti Sparkle fabric too. Well today I’m back to share Kaya’s holiday dress along with a few more pictures of Yuki’s dress.
For Kaya, I went with the always adorable Geranium Dress pattern in size 0-3 months. I used Confetti Sparkle in Cream for the skirt and some leftover shirting from the lining of my wedding dress for the bodice. I used the same Berry piping around the waistline as Yuki’s dress, but it looks dark brown or maroon in these pictures.
I’ve sewn this pattern up many times before and it’s always fun and fast. You’d think an itty bitty dress would be even faster, but since I was only getting about 5-10 minutes of sewing time here and there, it took me forever! And something about the shirting I used for the bodice, or the small size, or the way I sewed – I dunno!? – but I couldn’t get the bodice to press totally flat. So the neckline and armholes aren’t crisp. It totally bugs me when I look at these pictures, but I have to tell myself that really no one is going to care, right!? Especially when the model is this darn cute! 😛
So that’s Kaya’s dress. She is totally in drool and spit up mode over here, so the best part about this dress is that it doesn’t even show!!
Kristin at skirt as top made a sorta similar, but waaaay more gorgeous dress in Cream Confetti Sparkle for her daughter! You should check it out, it’s seriously the perfect holiday dress.
And in case you missed it, here’s Yuki’s dress in Navy Confetti Sparkle . . .
All the details of the dress can be found here.
And I am so happy to report that Yuki loves the dress!!
Almost as much as she loves popcorn.
Yes, she did almost drop the baby trying to sneak some popcorn!! Haha. Caught her just in time . . .
Well I hope your holiday preparations are going well. I’m honestly starting to feel super stressed about all the things I want to get done before next week. I have a list of things I wanted to sew up as gifts, but I’m afraid that at some point I’m just going to have to let some things go. How are you doing with your lists? Feeling ready?
Alright, one more Confetti Sparkle project coming up this week and then I promise to give it a rest for awhile. Hope your holiday season is filled with your own sparkle! 😉
Both dresses are so lovely!
Super super cute. You’ve done this fabric proud.
What gorgeous girls!
both beautiful dresses on gorgeous girls! 🙂
The dresses are darling Cherie and so are your girls.And drop that handmade gift list please! No one expects a new mom to be going and making hand made gifts. We sewists put too much pressure on ourselves.
Oh they’re both so scrumptious. Love the spit-up-hiding beauty of Kaya’s dress, and so fun that we’re twinsies! Thanks for the sweet link. 🙂
That is awesome. I love, love, love the last pic. The looks on the faces of both gals is priceless!
I almost can’t take it- they are both so adorable!
