My daughter Olivia wanted to make a santa dress for a Holiday party she was invited to attend. Fine – except she is 5. Which meant I would need to make it and she would art direct this little project (her words btw – and her dad is a creative director which means she REALLY understands the term “art direct”). So we found a costume pattern for a basic dress (I was nervous!) and altered it to suit our needs. The black ribbon simply tied in the back with a big bow. Olivia picked every aspect of this dress out – she would wear it around the house in it various states of finish – it was really fun to do with her. In the end it got me sewing again after five years – so that was a good thing.

PS – aren’t the boots hysterical?? :)

    Thank you for the kind comments – we did have a great time doing this project together. As for the boots – she has had them for over a year and is now finally growing into them much to her delight! :)
