DIY Holiday Baby Dress

This red lace dress is one of my sewing projects for the last quarter of the year. My elder daughter has a couple of red dresses already, so I thought I'd create something similar for my baby daughter to wear. Lately, I've been shopping for clothes in the same color or style, trying to dress them like twins. I sometimes also join the matchy-matchy ensemble as to avoid us looking like a festival of colors as we head out for a stroll or attend church. I thought it's nice to look at a family in the same shade of color or identical clothing.








I used a shiny fabric for the bodice and lace for the lower part of the dress.





Noticed something wrong with the back? Oh yeah, I had a hard time with the zipper closure.





Red is not the best color for her, but I think she loves it.





The truth is, I completed this project in October just in time for the Halloween.





She dressed as Little Red Riding Hood with a white apron, red cape with hood and a basket. In this photo though, she traded her picnic basket to one of her playmates with a cute pumpkin bucket.

I can feel that I am getting better and better in every sewing project which I accomplish. I feel proud that even without proper training, I am able to create something and save money over costumes or fancy dresses. Next time, I will be sharing another project on refashion. Till then. Happy holidays to you all!
