I love to sew. You'd be frightened by how many of my thoughts are about what I am sewing or what I'd like to sew. My sewing time is a bit limited these days. While making a red and green dress smocked with Santas would be fun, it's just not very practical. I try to make dresses that will last several seasons. That's not easy to do with baby clothes, since babies grow so quickly, but the girls are at an age where I can add extra length to the hem and they can wear the dresses for a year or more.
Last year I made green tattersall dresses that were finished just in time for Christmas. I sewed two buttons on the front of each dress and embroidered a Christmas tab that buttons on and off. Here's a picture of Caroline's.
I also had a friend machine embroider the girls' monograms on some bibs that I made. This is just a generic look for any season of the year.
So now it's time to debut the fall look for the green dresses. I embroidered pumpkins on the new tabs.
I'm very happy with the fall look. The Christmas tabs are ready to be buttoned on right after Thanksgiving!
