Have you been following the Simple Life Pattern Co. Holiday Blog Tour? I’ve been blown away by my tour mates and loving all the stunning dresses all week. We’re beyond excited to be sharing our looks today. Stay tuned to the end of the post for a giveaway, tour links, and sale info!
For our dresses this year, we let the fabric inspire us. We were lucky enough to have our post sponsored by Art Gallery Fabrics (can you say dream post? Gorgeous dress patterns in luscious fabric- count us in!). Katarina Roccella’s newest line, Decadence, just screamed holiday glamour to me. We picked the holiday perfect Houndstooth XIV Onyx and the dramatic Paon Plumes Rayon to coordinate. These fabrics can be dressed up for a concert performance or worn on Sunday to church services. Art Gallery Fabrics are amazing quality and I always feel like I’m spoiling my kids a little when I make something with them.
Little sis is wearing Helena’s Button Back Dress with the buttons moved to the front. I really wanted to let those gold buttons shine and there’s a little tip in the tutorial to make this dress reversible. Easy peasy and I love the glam those buttons add to the front.
I can’t wait for her to wear this all season long. She loves it and I can’t get enough of her in it! That sass really shines when she loves what she’s wearing 😉
I did the 3/4 sleeve and modest back options. This is a size 8 with added length for reference (her chest is 26″ and she is 55″ tall).
My tween loves anything sophisticated and trendy and the Patricia’s Boho Dress was just meant for her. The hi-lo hem and soft ruffles add such a sweet touch. This dreamy rayon just floats in this dress.
I love that this dress has no closure so it not only comes together quickly (even with all those ruffles!) but it’s just as glorious to wear. No zippers or buttons bugging her back!
I wish I was as elegant and charming as this sweet girl. Major love for this whole look on her!
This is the dramatic hi-lo hem with bell sleeve version. This is also a size 8 bodice with added length. She also has a 26″ chest and is 60″ tall (funny that they have such similar measurements still but she’s just crazy tall for her age!).
Sewing up these dresses has me itching for the holidays to come! Nothing like a little sewing to get you in the spirit. Make sure to check out all the other stops on the tour for some serious inspiration. Are you sewing dresses for your sweethearts this season? Can you stop at just one? The other ladies this week have me wanting to sew another dress or two before the year is over!
