The Christmas tree is hand appliqued with several machine appliqued mickey ornaments and some mickey button ornaments! The bodice is the new Lauren, but the skirt is actually the Grace by the same pattern designer.
The back of the bodice has several rows of elastic for a better fit. I added length for a bigger bow, because I love long tails! Two rows of ruffles on the back and a large bottom ruffle.
The second dress I auctioned off was an Aristocats dress. I found the perfect fabric for the dress and had to go with the Lauren pattern again. This time I used only the Lauren for the whole dress. The skirt has an apron with an applique of Marie on it. The bodice has the Aristocats logo on it.
I have made several new shirts this month as I have been testing designs for froufroubyheathersue. She does great designs and I love her new line of Christmas characters.
Now, you have read this far and you deserve a reward! I am doing a give-a-way this month. I will make, for one lucky fan, 1 lounge set for a child from size 1-14! Included is a pair of easy fit flannel pj pants and an appliqued top. I have several fabrics to choose from including Perry the Platypus, Tiana and Tinkerbell..along with some winter themed designs! The lounge set will be custom made to the winner's measurements and will be mailed within 5 weeks.
