Yesterday I told Miss P we could make her Christmas dress and she asked if she could help. I told her she could pick out the pattern... and she promptly lost interest. Until I picked up a bunch of different fabric choices and she spied the white stretch velvet. She said "I want a snowman dress!" I checked how much of the white I had and I told her we didn't have enough to make a snowman dress and she said "We can use the sparkly stuff for the skirt! That's a good idea, right?" Turns out it was a great idea. And she insisted the snowman had to have a red scarf, and it needed a hat.

Based on McCalls M6155.



The only change I made to the pattern was to add the black cowl neck to be the Hat.

She loves it.

It went together very quickly (less than an hour sewing time). The buttons took longer to sew on than anything else!

That's sooooo cute!  I'm going to a Christmas party in a few weeks for which we're required to have a holiday themed something on...I  might have to make a big girl version Cheesy

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

I love it.  A very creative idea, that is great for the whole winter (not just Christmas), and so much fun.

Great job.

You daughter is definitely creative!

The dress is so clever...and your addition of the hat and the scarf is wonderful!

Both of you will be bragging at your Christmas gatherings!  Well done!

That is JUST darling!!  Smiley  I love that she had so many of the ideas that contributed to the dress.  What grown-up would think of a snowman dress???  Way to nurture and honor her creativity!
