We, as in Phoebe and I, decided that the girls needed matching Christmas dresses this year. Because of their age difference, we had a hard time finding matching patterns. So we used several different patterns and altered them… it’s good that I have a thing for NOT following instructions.
The rest of the photo shoot:
Here’s the low down: for Esther’s dress we used McCall’s 5791 view E. I adjusted the sleeves a bit and put an overskirt over the satin skirt. For Elizabeth’s dress (the doll) we used Simplicity 3547 (bodice is view G and skirt is view C). For Phoebe’s we used the bodice of McCall’s 6098 and I just added a skirt that was 3x the width of the bodice.
I see more matching dresses in our future!
Here’s a great place to purchase all kinds of fabric at a fantastic price. (read our affiliate disclosure here)
