It did turn out very cute. I can see where this pattern would be a pain to put together, so I for one am darn proud of you. Job well done.

Well, I say it was worth all your hard efforts. Its adorable! :yea:

Is this the one that you're making for MK's little friend? I hope you are doing another for MK, too.

I like the different versions shown on the pattern package. It would be darling done up in summer fabric so don't put it too far back in the drawer. :hehe:

It looks very complicated. Are your hems a rolled hem with your serger?

Hi: :wave: I'm new to your forum. I joined to learn some heads up tips for the patterns I plan to use. Lo & behold, this is one of them! I'm a little scared to do this, but it's so cute, I have to try. Your remark about marking the back of the fabric happens to me every time! I can tell that by the time I finish it, I will really be wanting a serger. I wonder if I put a narrow bias binding on the flounce hems instead of hemming them, if it will mess up the flow of the flounces. Hmmm. I'll have to test, I guess. Thank you for sharing your pictures and sewing experience. Nice work! Teri

Jerry, I love this little Christmas Tree dress so much, believe it or not, I marked down the pattern number when I saw it on SF to make for our God Child, now that Cupcake is here guess I'll be making two for this Christmas...lol I thank you for the heads up on the pattern. Of course up here in winter they will have to wear a little white turtleneck with it and I was planning on making brown cordroy pants as the tree trunk...lol I'm glad this is here because I know I'll come back to look at it come fall when I start to make them...Delia
