Christmas Photo, Christmas Dresses

Phew, that was a long time coming! Why is it so hard to take a picture of the whole family together? I am quite happy to check off the "make family Christmas card" box on my to-do list.

And Lily's naps have been quite full of sewing this past week: the other day, I made each girl a Christmas dress, with Zosia helping me by pressing the "gray button" which turns the machine on. Nothing fancy, just a simple dress based on an existing dress that each girl had. And Lily got a fancy collar because I just couldn't quite get the original collar right. Perhaps I'll make Zosia a white sash so they're more matchy-matchy. They look a bit like a certain cartoon mouse, don't you think?


I hope your Advent is drawing your whole family inward!

Oh, I am always impressed by seamstresses! Those dresses are adorable- as are the girls!

I love your picture and the dresses are divine. I'm so glad I stopped what I'm doing and stopped by! You cheered my day.

Whew, Sarah Jane, "seamstress" is unfortunately not a title I can claim! More like "aspiring seamstress". ;-)

Aspiring seamstress over here too! Those dresses look great and your family is so cute. Zosia seems to look like you!

KnitterMama, yes, the general view is that Zosia takes after me, Lily after Ben. I suppose this next one will be the tiebreaker. ;-)
