I was brainstorming with my daughter in law, Amanda, to figure out what to make for her new daughter, Olivia, for Christmas. I suddenly remembered a Christmas Wreath I had made in the past out of shiny Christmas Balls in pastel colors. It was very pretty.
Amanda couldn’t picture in her head pastel colors for Christmas, so I did a quick Google image search for pastel Christmas decorations, and I found this photo.
Amanda showed the photo to Olivia and said she “cooed” over it, so that became the inspiration for this dress. It took a bit of searching to find embroidery patterns for Christmas in pastel shades. The ones I found are very cute, and fit the dress perfectly.
I also wanted to do something different with the skirt, so instead of a regular skirt on a yoke dress, I made a 2 layer skirt with pointed handkerchief hem. The top layer is pastel green and the bottom layer is pastel pink. They are positioned opposite each other so you can see the corners or points in the skirt. The embroidery on the skirt is just on the points.
I am very pleased with the results. It is a very cute and different dress.
