Happy New Year!

And Emmy's Christmas dress!

Happy New Year's Eve, everyone!  Hope you all have fun doing whatever you'll be doing tonight.  I'm going to my sisters' and will be eating way too much food and likely drinking way too much champagne.  Cheers!

Here are the photos of Emmylou's Christmas Dress, to close out 2011.  I LOVE this dress!  She did too - it was adorable.  Are there pictures of her in it?  Of course not.  :/

I got her this little snowman brooch... isn't it darling? :)

Mad happy with my improving zipper skillz.

So there it is!  What do you think!?  She wore it with ivory tights and black patent Mary Janes (of course, right?) and a little black rosette in her hair.  Ridiculously cute. :)

For reference again the skirt and bodice are Butterick 4718, and the StayPuft Marshmallow sleeves are from Simplicity 2674.  And there is a boat load of tulle - I basted it to the skirt(s) and then serged it to the bodice as one happy skirt/tulle unit.  And the sequin belt is jacked off a store-bought dress. :)

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend, and a great start to 2012!  I am SUPER looking forward to a new year!
Love to all!
