SLPco Holiday Blog Tour 2019

Group5

The SLPco Holiday Blog Tour has turned into one of my favorite traditions each year!  This is our third year joining the fun (you can see our past looks here and here).   It always pushes me to get our holiday dresses done a little earlier and my girls get to wear them through the whole season and beyond.

This post is sponsored by SLPco, Sly Fox Fabrics, and Raspberry Creek Fabrics.  I’m so grateful for their generosity in helping make these looks a reality.

These looks started with this amazing scuba knit from Sly Fox.  The floral is flocked onto the most vibrant red scuba knit.  I’ve always loved scuba for it’s thick, soft and squishy texture.  Throw on the velvety goodness of the floral print and I’m smitten!  This fabric was destined to be a holiday dress and so perfect for this spitfire.

I turned to a tried and true pattern- the Adelyn.  I’ve lost count of how many of these I’ve made.  That big bow back just makes such a statement!

The pretty puff sleeves and twirly circle skirt are details this girly loves!  I love how quickly it comes together.  The bodice is lined (I used a cotton lycra to reduce bulk) and there are no closures.  I skipped hemming on the skirt (I couldn’t get the scuba to give me a crisp press and I’m always game for anything that makes my life easier, lol).  I did an 8 with a 12 length on the skirt according to her measurements and think the fit is spot on.  I can always count on SLPco to fit just right!

My older daughter wanted something a little more sophisticated.  We used a classic black velvet from Raspberry Creek Fabrics to create a timeless look.  I used Autumn’s Shift Dress with the shoulder ruffles for a simple dress with so much class.

She’s off the charts for height now but this pattern was easy to add length to.  I did the bodice lined version to skip the neckband.  This is the 3/4 sleeve length as well.

It was so fun to get together with Inara and her mom for this shoot.  Anna shot all of these group pics and I’m dying over how cute they are!  These girls love any chance they get to see darling Inara.
