    Some Christmas Dresses

    I always make Christmas dresses for my girls. I don't like how short the store dresses are on kids and since my daughters are tall for their age, it makes it much worse. This year, though, they picked out velvet and taffeta! Yikes! Not fun to gather or sew with. :-P So, here's the photos. My oldest is 10 and in the silver and black. My youngest is 8 and in the red and black.

    So pretty-both the girls and the dresses.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Adorable girls and very pretty dresses. I have to agree with you about the length of dresses today. It's a shame, but that is fashion today. Have a Merry Christmas.

    Your girls look so lovely in those dresses. We too dressed up for Christmas. My daughter still has some of the velvet and satin dresses I've made over the years.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Wow, great job, they look beautiful, and your girls look like angels in their pretty, new dresses! I miss my girls being that age and getting to sew for them.

    Thanks, everyone! The dresses were a pain to sew, being taffeta, but I was so thrilled to see their faces.

    They are gorgeous... and so are the dresses. I love your girls' smiles. They must warm your heart constantly.

    Beautiful girls and dresses! I have to agree with you on the length. My daughter is tall for her age and I hate those super short dresses. She loves dresses but likes length...maybe some day I will learn how to make her a dress as beautiful as these!
