In less than 2 weeks...

it will be Christmas and hopefully things will start to settle down. I have been trying to stay on top of things this year but I didn't realize that the holiday has gotten so close already. I just wanted to quickly post since I am in the midst of ironing, laundry and planning the next week. I wanted to share a photo of the dress that I made for Matt's Christmas party.

Not too shabby for my first dress. I had some help with the zipper and attaching the top and bottom from my mother in law while I was in the shower. Needless to say, I was finishing this at the last minute and even did a little tacking in the bathroom when we got there.

Here's the dress on me, (it fits me a little better than "Lucy"). I just got "Lucy" on Monday at B Moss's closing sale. Man would it have been helpful to have this dress form last week. Oh well, it will come in handy the next time. You should have seen the looks I got as I was walking through the mall with my new friend, lol.
Anyway, I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season and I will be checking back soon with some new LO's to share.

That dress is gorgeous!! The color is so pretty. And I love your hair like that, you are one smokin' mama!! Great job on the dress. I'm only brave enough to sew curtains!
