So my mom, Grandma Jane, has done it again! To be totally honest, I don’t think I have ever received something my mom has made and not been totally thrilled. For one, I put a huge value on handmade items and two, she and I have very similar taste.
I was really excited when my mom said that she wanted to make the girls Christmas dresses. Usually I like to do the kids special occasion outfits, but with having three little ones now, I was more than happy to have someone lighten the load. Mom said that she wanted to make the dresses from my Janey Jumper sewing pattern ~ how fun is that?
This is View B from the Janey Jumper pattern. Now I did give the instructions in the pattern in regards to the center panel, ruffles, ect., but mom picked out the fabric and trims totally on her own. She used Kate Spain’s “Flurry” for all the Christmas outfits.
Matilda’s dress is the red one and Savannah’s dress is the green one. I love the red ribbon trim with little white stitching. I think it’s really fun to have my kids coordinate with one another, but not totally match.
When I opened the package from my mom I was excited to see the onesies for Caspian, which were a total surprise. Mom included a striped zip-up sweater for the little man as well (it just didn’t make it into the picture). She said the Christmas tree onesie was a last minute addition, but I really like it. Plus the green and red tie onesies can be worn after Christmas as well.
