christmas dresses

every year I make the girls Christmas dresses.
so far they have been the same, and I will continue making them matching dresses until they complain!
this is Maggie's dress this year-

and back-
sadie's is the same idea, but she asked for long sleeves,
and silly me- I measured her arm from the shoulder where sleeves usually start,
and cut out the pieces, sewed them on, and once she tried on her dress I realized that I should have measured from her neck instead- so she ended up with 3/4 inch sleeves. but she said that's okay.
I meant to take a picture of them in their dresses on Sunday, but they changed out of them too quickly.
if I didn't tell you, you would never know that they were made out of a bed sheet, right?
shh. it will be our little secret!
