Sweet Dress-up for Christmas Eve

Baby Q. will be turning one this week! That milestone is all at once happy (he’s a big boy) and sad (where did my baby go?) But there is something in my closet to soften the blow for Mommy. I started sewing clothes for C right around his first birthday. So Baby Q has a closet full ready to go!

Christmas Eve Jumper

And this one is a favorite!

Ready for church

From Oliver + S, this pattern is easy to make with her incredible instructions. And the actual patterns don’t require a PhD to fold and put back in the packaging. This is MAJOR!

I used a traditional plaid and velveteen with silver buttons – which was fun!

But you can also make this up with fun prints.

If you are sewing for girls, there is a sweet dress version of this pattern. And even better, from the creator of Oliver + S, Liesl Gibson, is a miniature version of this dress for your little girls’ baby dolls. The book isĀ Little Things to Sew. I have made many of the projects from this book and love it.
