Christmas is in the air! Getting ready with EYMM!

kenzies holiday tour

Now that Halloween has passed it is time to get ready for the other holidays to come! You know what that means…time to start those Holiday outfits. Do you realize that there are only 7 weeks till Christmas?? Yes, take a deep breath. You got this! I know I was so happy to be able to participate in this tour as it made me finish my baby girl’s Christmas dress on time! I couldn’t be happier with the results either. Just take a look at Kenzie’s Party Dress and Skirt by Everything Your Mama Made (EYMM) and you know you have yourself an amazing dress or skirt!

Let’s take a look at this pattern shall we?RTC_6288 First off it comes in separated patterns for NB-4T, 5-18 tween, and a doll add on. Want all the sizes? You can get the bundle too at a discount! I just love that you can create so many different looks with this pattern. Included are options for the signature full layered skirt and a simple skirt, sleeveless or puff cap sleeve, and two different high waisted skirts. Did you take a look at the back? The scooped back is just so elegant. The bodice is fully lined for that professional finish too. There is also a sash that is full and beautiful. On either side of the sash there is a little gathering to create that full look.RTC_6344 The tutorial is put together very well in order to walk you through each step. That being said I would say this pattern is on the intermediate level but the advanced beginner would feel comfortable doing the simple skirt. One feature I particularly love is the planning guide to help you figure out fabric placement for the signature skirt. It made figuring out which fabric went where a breeze!

I just love lace for the holidays. RTC_6367I knew that I wanted to make the signature skirt out of lace. Also one bonus for making the skirt in lace…I didn’t have to hem every flounce! Yay! I choose a size 9-12mo according to the measurements, however after cutting the skirt panels I knew that it would be a little tight in the rear area. I then re-cut with the length of the 9-12mo but the width of the 12-18mo. That worked out perfectly. Now, I prefer baby girl’s dresses to have sleeves as I don’t like covering up a beautiful dress with a sweater.RTC_6226 I just knew I had to try my hand at adding long sleeves to the dress along with the little cap sleeve too. They aren’t perfect as you can see but they work and will keep her a little warmer. I just love the finished dress. It came out just as I imagined!

  1. Oh my word Rebekah, you are incredible, you have done an amazing job. I love lace also, but would never have been game enough to use it the way you have, but I think you have inspired me to give it a go. Well done, I am totally in love with your dress and you have done the pattern wonderful justice. I also love how you did long sleeves and still used the cap sleeves. Can’t get enough!
